Hello Michael, the Thunderbolt* controller included with this Intel® NUC model supports PCI Express and DisplayPort* protocols.
At this moment, only the devices including Thunderbolt*2.0 will be supporting Gigabit Ethernet.
I have included some information about WOWLAN.
at first, thank you for your answer. Let me ask for some clarifications though:
1)"the Thunderbolt* controller included with this Intel® NUC model supports PCI Express and DisplayPort* protocols"
Does this mean that i can install any driver i would like and it will work with the adapter? I know already that with realtek PCIE family drivers the wake on lan works (i have it on my Lenovo laptop).
2) I have included some information about WOWLAN.
In the first link it is specified that WOWLAN will work only with Windows 8. However, when i look in the download center, i see versions of drivers for Windows 7 also:
In the latest version 17.1.0 for Windows 7 it is not specified that the WoWLAN is removed as opposed to the older version 15.3.1. So will the WoWLAN work with the latest version on Windows 7?
In case that yes, i am thinking to go with the model: Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
Thank you very much for clarifying!
- The Technical Product Specification indicates that no drivers are required for the Thunderbolt* interface; therefore I cannot guarantee that the driver you are referring about will work or if it will cause undesired results with the system. Actually, it is not recommended to install a driver that was not designed for this system.
- The information I provided earlier indicates WOWLAN is supported with driver versions 15.6 or above, in Windows* 8
