I recently installed Rock on my Intel NUC8i3 and everything works like a charm except the Wifi. It won’t appear in the Rock configuration page. I have read an old post about Rock not supporting the new Wifi firmware (NUC8), but that was posted in Januari. Are there any updates on this?
Wireless networking is ubiquitous, and often consumers expect that every device can and should be wireless. While Roon is often controlled over WiFi (using Roon Remote on a mobile device) and RAAT (the protocol used by Roon Ready devices) is designed to work reliably over WiFi, Nucleus is an infrastructure product. Because its primary function is to act as the Roon Core on a home network, reliability is a key networking requirement. We made the decision not to implement WiFi in Nucleus, and rather to require a connection to a router or switch via Gigabit ethernet.
I actually solved the problem with a Wifi repeater (Mesh). It works very well with a 20 000+ catalogue. However, it would be great to have the NUC built-in Wifi working. How often do they update the ROCK firmware with new drivers?
