I wonder if anyone else has the same issue, or is it just me?
It took me a month to find out why my wifi is unstable. I even get a replacement with the same problem. At the end I realized it's an interference between the SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive and the built in wifi in the Intel Compute Stick. Read the other thread:
When the flash drive is connected to the USB2 port the wifi just works fine, but when I connect it to the USB3 the wifi stops working.
I found out that this is a known issue since many years back:
Please stay with your other thread Wifi is unreliable in the new STK1AW32SC (2016 model). I tried everything suggested., I noticed that rguevara and Hellen_Intel are working with your case.
I also have encountered the same problem: loss of wifi when using the USB 3.0 port. See another confirmation here: http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com.au/2016/04/test-ubuntu-1604-lts-iso-for-intel-atom.html?showCommen... c4970370584298562654 linuxium.com.au: Test Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ISO for Intel Atom Compute Sticks.
Just bought the Windows 10 updated version and had no problems configuring it to my TV (I have a scaling problem but can either live with it or fix it).
I have a Bluetooth dongle for keyboard and mouse plugged into the USB 2 port, no problems.
Last week I connected an external 3Gb Seagate UDB (3 capable) drive into the USB 3 port and immediately had modem connection problems. At that stage I was just getting to use the ICS so ended up getting it to work without the Seagate drive.
Today I thought I would re-check the influence of the Seagate drive, maybe it was too close to the router. No, it doesn't matter where it is, as long as it is plugged in I get a router connection but no internet. Disconnect it and all is well.
Tomorrow I will plug the drive into the USB 2 port and see if all is ok.
Sorry about the delay in posting. Yes, plugging the keyboard/mouse dongle into the USB 3 port and my external drives etc into the USB 2 port has worked no problems. I can repeatedly put the external drive into the USB port and immediately loose ine internet connection. interestingly, I do not loose the local network connection through the router, only the internet.
