Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 (NUC5PPYH) does not support AP mode


It's too sad to see this so I want to know if it's possible to enable AP mode on Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 with a driver update, or not? And if it's not, can I ask for a list of wifi adapter, and a list of NUC devices that support AP mode please? Can I buy another adapter to replace this Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165?

Thank you for your answer

Hello ManhTai:



In regard to your inquiry, I just wanted to confirm that the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 does not support the feature of access point mode, and there is no option or driver to enable it, let me apologize for that.



In regard to the other questions, about getting a list of compatibles wi-fi adapters, the list of NUC's that support AP and if the wireless card can be replaced, an agent from our networking department will be able to provide that information for you, I just transfer the thread to that department.



Any questions, please let me know.
