Hello Imwithud, I'm sorry for the inconvenience that you have faced with your NUC. We know internal devices are very delicate.
In regards to the warranty replacement of your unit, it will be necessary to replace the whole NUC, since we don't have spare parts.
Please contact our Warranty department so they can help you. http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport
I appreciate the response, however, I was hoping for replacement parts. I'm sufficiently adept at repairing it on my own. I had eventually found internal Wi-Fi antennas for mini-PCI network adapters (aka eBay). Although it means taking it apart again, I'll have a spare this time in case it occurs again (unlikely).
The plastic sheathing may have played a part as it continually slipped back until the lead eventually separated from the wire.
I understand. I hope you fix it.!!
Did the replacement antenna work?
I had a connector come off too.
The same happened to me and I'm searching for an antenna replacement. I would be happy if you could share which antenna you used and what the results were. Thanks!
On a side note I got the response that the leaflet packed along with it has since been updated to include the plastic covers on the coax cables in the pictures. That they weren't present in the pictures I think was the main reason I decided that they should be removed, hence my mishap...
Yes and it has worked ever since. I ended up buying about a dozen in case it happens again.
I bought it from eBay. Search for Laptop Wireless Mini PCI PCI-E Internal Antenna. I'm not too fond of how Intel installs the antennas. Be careful when removing the one that is broken. There is a metal piece which can easily be broken and a bit tricky to put back. I would recommend that Intel change this setup.
