I'm using an Aten USB to RS232 adapter to control a device. It behaves erroneously on a NUC but behaves correctly on similar (3.0) connection on on a Compute Stick. The adapter is designed for USB 2.0.
"Backward compatibility" seems doesn't work on NUC?
You are talking about this one, correct?
It looks to me like the lid has a chipset that connects to the internal usb port of the nuc.
The purchase and shipping would be done via gorite.com.
Now, the disclaimer - I do not know that this will solve your problem. However, it does look very promising.
If you do try and test this lid, please report back the results. It could help others that need similar solutions.
- Your WiFi and Bluetooth should be fully functional. This WiFi module is Dual Band module (support 2.4GHz and 5Ghz band). So, it's supporting Dual Mode Bluetooth 5.0. The internal antennas (two of them), are already installed in your NUC. You can see only the antennas cables (black and white) connected to the WiFi module. You need to open the bottom cover to see it.
- In order to use the WiFi module, you need to install the necessary drivers (could be that there are already installed from Windows update). The easiest way to install all drivers, is using Intel Driver & Support Assistant (IDSA): https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28425/Intel-Driver-Support-Assistant?product=128824. Download and install IDSA and perform system scan.
Leon, thank you very much for the attached and very instructive image! I could hardly belive that these two pieces are real antenas for their shapes don't resemble to what is usually seen outside.
I'm also grateful to the community which teaches me so many useful facts!
Thanks to all!
I must have overlooked in the OS (w10 Home) that WiFi is operational unless Leon is right that a proper driver must be installed (What I haven't done for sure (yet)!). So it looks that all my problems are solved and if everything goes well the efforts are minimal.
Thanks to all contributors!
If you aren't using the Intel Driver and Support Assistant (IDSA) to keep your driver up to date, you can download the latest driver packages here:
It is recommended to install/update Bluetooth before Wireless.
Hope this helps,
