    Intel NUC Poor Wifi Performance - Fix

    iancun

      I've had big problems with the WiFi performance on my Intel NUC for quite some time, so I came up with a modification which I hope helps other users on here.

       

      It'll void your warranty, as you need to drill a couple of holes in your case to get it to work - so it's only worth doing if you really need a fix. I cost just under £20 for parts to complete the mod, but you may be able to do it cheaper if you have a more common mini-PCI wifi card.

       

      Here's the how-to article I wrote: https://www.pcreview.co.uk/threads/intel-nuc-poor-wifi-external-antenna-mod.4071908/

       

      This is what it looks like once the antenna sockets are attached:

      I hope this helps someone else with the same problem . Let me know if you need any help and I'll do my best to assist.
