Cards that are not inlcluded should not cause kernel panic as they wont be enabled.

mine is 8260. So it is supported. But yet randomly have KPs.

One iwm_module may support more than one wifi models, see below link for detail.


In theory, AppleIntelWifi should support all 3000, 7000, 8000, 9000 series Intel wifi but depended on source codes XXXX.cpp definition.

Since AppleIntelWifi not open source, use itlwm code as example.
mac80211.cpp (from itlwm) source code sample.

I would like to use itlwm but with the hardcoded SSID and PW i think not! can you please share how and which file is the SSID and PW hardcoded and the code to compile? Appreciate much. Thanks

Latest itlwm kext (09 May 2020) from Chinese website, unzip attached file and place both kexts to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other.

Tested with 7265 AC, so far no KP issue but upload seems to be not work correctly, speedtest result, download speed round 35 Mbps, upload 0 Mbps,

Router settings
ssid=ssdt
pwd=zxyssdt112233

Just tried it out. I am using Open Core 0.5.8. When loading itl8022.kext system KPs. But without it the system boots and able to connect and surf net. Noticed that in the system preference, under Network, it says Ethernet.

Just tested itl80211, seems to be a dummy kext or not complete yet, for 3,5,7,8,9 series Intel wifi, use itlwm.kext is enough.

Noticed that in the system preference, under Network, it says Ethernet.

Of course, itlwm is wifi over IOEthernet base project

can you please share how and which file is the SSID and PW hardcoded and the code to compile?

Try reset network preference, something like post #341, delete and re-create device.
I do not have 8260 card for test, not sure, but both my 3160, 7265 work fine with AppleIntelWifi, no random kp issue.

Intel 8260 AC should use iwm-8000C-XX module, see below link

If you doubt that random KP issues are caused by firmware, download latest firmware from below link

Try download latest iwlwifi-8000C-36.ucode or older iwlwifi-8000C-31.ucode module for test, rename it to iwm-8000C-34, replace and chown, chmod, reboot, then manual load AppleIntelWifi.kext.

Ok tried iwlwifi-8000C-36. Network able to detect but cannot connect. I think i need to forget the network and add in again. Any idea how i can do that?

Seems to be caused by corrupted network/wifi preference more rather than wifi firmware update, just opposite,not add in again but clear all.
Try open network preference —>wifi —> Advanced , clear all preferred networks and checkbox, apply then reboot.
Below is my wifi preference setting for itlwm and AppleIntelWifi, all empty, so far work fine.
