I got inspired by the YouTube script, so perhaps you also want to use this.

For people who want to load the kext on start-up, here is a little easy script which is using the following code:

Code:
cd ~/Downloads/wifikexts
sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelWiFi.kext
sudo kextload AppleIntelWiFi.kext


Note that:
- you still need to enter the password, but you don’t have to copy/paste the code in Terminal using this script.
- you will need to download the (latest) AppleIntelWiFi.kext yourself somewhere. Users are sharing that here with each other if you don't want to build it yourself with xCode.
- You can use this script until the kext will work with within the EFI kext /10.15.5/Other folder (that needs further developments from the developers). Do NOT use that method now, because it will panic your Hackintosh.

Steps:
1. I always like to have my Downloads folder clean, so in the Downloads folder I made a folder named ‘wifikexts’. Do the same if you want the script to function. So, the path will become ‘(User)/Downloads/wifikexts’
2. Copy your version of ‘AppleIntelWiFi.kext’ to that location
3. Copy this script to that location or any other location which seems suitable to you
4. Go to System Preferences-> Users and Groups-> Login Items and add the script to the list and check it.
Reboot (by doing a cold-startup), the terminal asks for your password, enter that, and see if it works.

Great tutorials. Is there a way without entering password? I’m try googling but not found any solution

The IntelWifi project at https://github.com/zxystd/itlwm has been updated and it finally allows to set SSID and password in Info.plist, it allows setting multiple networks and connect to the first available one.

For me on AC7260 the speed are better than with the Chinese kext.

You need to build the kext from source ... so I am attaching it here so you do not have to.

Look for WiFiConfig key in the Info.plist, there is an array of two networks defined. You can also set the password empty if you want to connect to a network without authentication, it should work if I am reading the source code correctly.
Hey, this kext works perfectly on my HP Omen 15 AX001LA with his Intel WIFI 7265, its awesome.
I've issues with the chinese kext, disabling SIP, GateKeeper, don't help I get KP every kextload :'(

Drop connection issue (probably caused by heavy TX operation) seems to be reduced on new itlwm.kext, so far no drop connection issue is found, BT app test passed.
Tested with 7265 AC.

Use below commands to resume network if connection dropped.
sudo kextunload -b com.zxystd.itlwm
sudo kextload -v ~/Downloads/itlwm.kext

I have an Intel AC-3168, and I'd like to know how to have more than one wifi profile on the kext, because I have 3 routers at home and I don't like to reboot every time I want to change the network. Any solution?

Unload the kext, change the info.plist, reload the kext.
