[Solved] Intel 8260: issue under Catalina


Recommended Posts

On the https://openintelwireless.github.io there is an information under Compatibility section that the Intel 8000 Series WiFi cards are supported by the itlwm.kext and Airportitlwm.kext. I have in my Dell E5470 the model 8260, but under my Catalina with Clover 5119  the card is undetectable with this kexts. I wonder if there is any guide/thing dealing with this issue, or should I replace my card to DW 1560 or 1830?

Make sure to use appropriate version for the version of MacOS you're running.

Use either itlwm or Airportitlwm, not both at the same time.

Note, if using itlwm, you need to use Heliport.app to configure the settings.

If using Airportitwm, you can connect to Hidden network.

 

I prefer to use DW1830 or DW1560 since the Intel is still not functioning at its fullest capacity.

Thank you Jake Lo for the response. Indeed the Intel 8260 WiFi card works with the kext itlwm.kext & HeliPort. This is good information for me, and I will give a chance to this setup before I will decide to invest for a new WiFi card.
