Hi,

I have a NUC NUC5CPYH.

My version of BIOS is 62.

I search a checkbox or other way to disable M2 slot or directly Intel Wireless-AC 3165 Wireless adapter.

I need to disable this device but i must keep it in position.

Please help.

Hello pistolgui,

As far as I'm aware, there is no BIOS setting for this. However, you may need to check with our team over at the /community/tech/nuc Intel® NUC support community for more information.

We can suggest disabling your wireless adapter from within your OS.

If you're using Windows*, this can be done through Device Manager:

If you're using Linux* OS, this may change depending on your distribution. We can suggest contacting your distribution's support community for the exact steps. Here's an example from Ubuntu*: https://askubuntu.com/questions/707964/how-to-disable-a-wifi-adapter. https://askubuntu.com/questions/707964/how-to-disable-a-wifi-adapter.

Hello,

Thanks for the answer and informations.

Disabling the wifi adapter in BIOS is a term of security imposed by my company.

I've post my question at the /community/tech/nuc Intel® NUC support community.

Best regards,
