Volumio Version: 2.861
DAC: Micromega myDAC
I have installed Volumio 2.861 on an Intel NUC8i3BEK and discovered that Ethernet & Wi-Fi network interfaces are not recognized. On the Intel site, I have found that a NUC8i3BEK is equipped with the following network interfaces:
- Integrated LAN: Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V
- Integrated Wireless: Intel Wireless-AC 9560
I have also successfully installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on the same NUC8i3BEK and both Ethernet & Wi-Fi interfaces are supported, meaning that Ubuntu 20.04 has the proper drivers in its Debian kernel that Volumio’s does not have yet.
Question: When do you think Volumio will have the necessary network drivers to support the 8th generation of Intel NUCs which are on the market since Q3 2018 ? If there is no clear answer, I’ll have to return my NUC8i3BEK…
Thank you for your support on this excellent software.
PS: I saw in a another post that the Wi-Fi interface of the 7th generation of NUCs was not supported by Volumio (but may be it is supported now, I haven’t check).
