Can't connect to internet - Ubuntu


Hi everyone,

I bought the Intel Comute Stick, and as I only need it for basic uses, I bought the Ubuntu version with 1gb RAM and 8gb flash.

Now after a while I was abe to set up the device, and it displays me it's connected to mz home wifi, but when trzing to reach a website, it can't connect to the Internet.

But there seems to be some kind of connection, as it's still possible to make searches via apps which have been pre-installed.

My guess would be, as the wifi adapter inside the stick isquite bad, maybe the connection is not strong enough?

But still I think a driver update could help here, but Intel doesn't provide any drivers for Ubuntu, do zou guys know what can be done here?

Appreciate any help!

There also is a issue with the Intel Ticket Szstem, as I canno open anz Tickets, not via MS Edge, IE, FF or Chrome.

Best regards,

Hi Piri,

The internet connection of the first Intel® Compute Stick generation is slower than nowadays laptops and phones. A BIOS update might improve the performance. The latest versions available in the link below. Downloads for Intel® Compute Stick STCK1A8LFC
