I’d be interested in knowing, whether anyone else have/had similar problems and may could give an advice.
I have a N3160 based jetway NU591 board and want to use an ac WiFi card with it. It is the Compex WLE600VX, which is known to be a bit difficult, but on this motherboard, neither ipfire linux nor HBCD PE finds it at all. On another jetway board with an i5-4300U at least HBCD PE gets it. I guess, ipfire will find it as well, I just did not try it yet.
Because there is still another problem with the NU591: After I had no sucess with the Compex card, I tried a RTL8191SE half size to get some more bandwidth on WiFi-AP. Only, with this card in half size slot, whole system won’t start no more. Neither the at HDMI-port attached LCD nor keyboard showed any access. I only could get system to run again, after I moved the half-size RTL card by an adapter into the full size slot - making it impossible to use a msata.
Is anyone out there, who had same and know a workaround, or still better, a solution?
