  1. “Boardcon” sounds so suspiciously similar to “Broadcom” that it makes it hard to dismiss this as a coincidence. LOL!

    @cnxsoft, is there any other addon module which would equip the board with Wi-Fi a/c?

    You can see the Ampak AP6212 module is soldered on board. So an AC module like AP6335 could be put in place if they have designed the PCB for multiple version for the Ampka module like other companies do. If they have then maybe if you order several hundreds they could replace the module for you, and manufacture those boards.

    Alternatively, a USB dongle would also do.
