After installing macOS Big Sur on my laptop I faced the following error WiFi and Bluetooth are not working. There is a troubleshooting method that you can perform for fixing the WiFi an Bluetooth network isn’t working. Your MacBook Mac rejects to connect to WiFi internet and Bluetooth devices, but other devices will.

There can be several reasons why your WiFi and Bluetooth isn’t connecting. Mostly macOS Big Sur is new in the market due to that most of the users are facing software issues. After the installation, they can not perform the driver’s installation.

Fix Intel Wifi and Bluetooth on macOS Big Sur

To Fix Intel WiFI and Bluetooth on macOS Big Sur you have to download the below down Kext and drivers. And follow my guide to fix these issues.

Required files

Step 1. To begin this process first off all you need to mount the EFI partition. For mounting the EFI partition open the Clover clover configurator, click on “Mount EFI” and click “Mount Partition”. And enter your username password and click OK. When the partitioned mounted close the clover configurator.

Step 2. Over ahead to the Kext files and copy that, open the mounted EFI partition disk Open EFI>Clover>Kexts>Others>and paste there.

Step 11. Once your PC restarted enter your password and press enter key. Then over ahead to WiFi check that if it should work perfectly. Then over ahead to Bluetooth device check that too, again if that is not working re-apply the following steps once again for your PC.

But this method works perfectly for me and now I am able to use WiFi and connect the Bluetooth devices with each other.

Yes, sure, thank you for concerning.
Laptop HP ProBook 450 G5,
CPU QuadCore Intel Core i7-8550U, 2600 MHz (26 x 100) Kaby Lake-R,
Operating System Mojave System Version: macOS 10.14.6 (18G103).
WIFI Intel Dual Band AC-8265 , Device 0x24FD, Subdevice 0x1010, Vendor 0x8086

UPDATE, VERY IMPORANT, and very strange: WIFI stop working as I said. I added itlwmx.kext on EFI, same location like itlwm.kext. Of course the system, after restart “FROZEN”., scenario expected by me. I removed itlvmx.kext, restarted again and SURPRIZE: the WIFI come-back and start to run properly !!!!!! I don’t understand why FROZEN action helped the WIFI to come-back to life….

Hello !
I found an easy solution: I deleted all files from /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/
After that I reboot the system am WIFI come-back and work.
OpenCore is very nice, but I will implement when I will move to Big Sur.
For now I am very confortable with Clover, and very stable Mojave
Thank you !!

Good Morning Johhny ! This OpenCore is a huge chalenge ! Now, in my laptop I have a lot of patches and kext. It is totally functional, except AirDrop and Bluetooth(About both I am not interested). The system is Mojave. What I should understand: IF I will install Big Sur on a new laptop, with compatible CPU of course, compatible WIFI module, etc, this Opencore will be able to find necessary kexts, and patches, will install all and the result will be a compatible hackintosh laptop with full HD, battery management, and active WIFI ? It is so smart OpenCore ? Thank you very much for answer

You have the drivers including all Kexts, for installing macOS Big Sur on your PC you need to create an OpenCore EFI file. Check the link for creating an opencore EFI file for your system. https://wikikeep.com/how-to-create-opencore-efi-for-macos-big-sur/
