I'm having difficulty disabling the onboard "Intel (R) Wireless-AC 9560" WLAN in my NUC8i7BEH running latest 0056 BIOS. When the WLAN checkbox is unchecked in Visual BIOS, Windows 10 can still see the WLAN device node, the Intel WLAN driver is still loaded, and only the WiFi link is set to a "turned off" state.
On my other NUC models, unchecking WLAN checkbox makes the WLAN device node invisible to Windows OS, but with the NUC8i7BEH, the WLAN checkbox appears to just disable the WiFi radio instead of disabling the PCIe device node of the WLAN.
I'm looking for a way to clean disable "Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560" in my NUC8i7BEH.
Thanks for the confirmation, n.scott.pearson!
