    Anyone else wifi stops when using the USB 3.0 port?

    Magyar

      I wonder if anyone else has the same issue, or is it just me?

       

      It took me a month to find out why my wifi is unstable. I even get a replacement with the same problem. At the end I realized it's an interference between the SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive and the built in wifi in the Intel Compute Stick. Read the other thread: Wifi is unreliable in the new STK1AW32SC (2016 model). I tried everything suggested.

      When the flash drive is connected to the USB2 port the wifi just works fine, but when I connect it to the USB3 the wifi stops working.

       

      I found out that this is a known issue since many years back:
