Wireless-AC 9260 in nuc5cyph


The original m.2 wifi card was used for some other computer a while back so I had to get a new m.2 card for the old nuc5cyph.

I purchased AC 9260, installed it (installs perfectly, no issues) but it does not show in BIOS (version 75) nor in the OS.

If this card compatible with this nuc? Where can I find m.2 wifi cards compatibility for this NUC model nuc5cyph?

Hello ferdydek



Thank you for posting in the Intel® community.



Please bear in mind that the Intel® NUC Kit NUC5CPYH comes with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 module pre-installed in M.2 2230 slot and the drivers available for this unit support this Intel® Wireless adapter only. Replacing the Intel® Wireless adapter and installing other drivers may or may not work; Intel® does not support upgrading the wireless adapter of the Intel® NUC.



Please refer to this support link provided above for more information.


Hope this helps.
