NUC Kit NUC5i3MYHE Wi-Fi Access Point

I have a Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i3MYHE, When I read the I/O Specifications,

It show "Integrated Wireless‡

Wireless antennas pre-assembled", Our customer believe NUC Kit NUC5i3MYHE can be wi-fi access point( AP), I try to explain it does no working like that.! So I need a official statement from Intel, NUC Kit NUC5i3MYHE can not be a wi-fi access point .!

NUC with Windows installed can be used as a Hotspot to access an ISP. This is similiar function to WiFi Access Point.

KLian6, As it was mentioned previously, when using Windows* the Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i3MYHE can be used as a Hotspot. Just to let yo know, even though some customers are able to install and use Ubunto* as the operating system of the unit, Intel® has not validated that OS, as you can confirm if the following link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005628/mini-pcs.html For any information related to Ubunto, please visit their forums where the peers in there might be able to further assist you: https://ubuntuforums.org/ Regards, Alberto R.

Just for your information, hotspot can be created on system runing Ubuntu O.S. as well. See here an example: ​http://learn.linksprite.com/project/create-wifi-hotspot-in-ubuntu-16-04-android-support

So the answer for your quastin is that your customer is right (i.e. NUC can be used as an Internet Access Point)​
