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.

Hi I tried. But seems like the kext loaded well but not internet connection established.iwlwifi-8000C-36

I followed your instruction. Downloaded iwlwifi-8000C-36 and i renamed it to iwm-8000C-34 and did chmod -R 755 to make it unix executable. After which i copied into the AppleIntelWiFi.kext to replace the existing unix executable.

Still don't understand why unable to established internet connection.

Make AppleIntelWiFi.kext executable again after iwm-module replaced.

sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelWiFi.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 AppleIntelWiFi.kext

Renamed iwlwifi-8000C-36.ucode to iwm-8000C-34 and replaced with the previous one. Info.plist, changed the BSSID & PW to my network SSID.

The wireless card AC8260 detected correctly with the correct MAC address and my network SSID is listed correctly.

Check IORevision with IORegistryExplorer.
Before replacing iwm-module
IOModel is xxxx-17, IORevision is 17.xxxx

After iwm-module replaced
IOModel is xxxx-17, IORevision is 16.xxxx

If your result show as below then new firmware is loaded but not working correctly with wifi model, new firmware may be buggy.
For 8260, last bug fix version from Intel is iwlwifi-8000C-16.ucode, not sure still work or not, try older version like iwlwifi-8000C-31.ucode.
IOModel is xxxx-34
IORevision is 36.xxxx
