Intel Compute Stick STK2M3W64CC appears on Amazon

Intel have confirmed shipping in May with one vendor already taking pre-orders.

Interesting to note that the slated price is lower than the expected RRP so hopefully aggressive pricing will make this excellent device even more affordable.


  1. I don't know who to ask. But I got this USB 3.1 hub with Gigabit Ethernet and power for my STK2MV64CC http://amzn.com/B00X0Q0YX4 I can't get the Gigabit Ethernet to work on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server. Kernel 4.4.0-22-generic (SMP)x86_64 if I do this:

    modprobe r8153
    modprobe: FATAL: Module r8153 not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.0-22-generic

    I know it's a r8153 because I open it up and can read that number on the chip inside the hub. After some time it will install a 8152 driver but it will not work right. I did find a driver download here: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=56&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&SortByDesc=1 but it's just some file named "0004-r8152.53-2.06.0" but inside the file it does show "#define DRIVER_DESC "Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153 Based USB Ethernet Adapters" but I don't know how to install it.

    I think you are the best to help with this. I am just using a USB 2.0 to 10/100 Ethernet on it now. Or I can use the WiFi on it too they both work.

    Hope you can help.

  2. I found out can un zip that file more the "0004-r8152.53-2.06.0" and then can run a make and make install but it don't fix any thing it stays the same. I guess it's for the 8152 that is a 10/100 and the 8153 that I have is a 10/100/1000 So I guess that's why it don't work.

    Plug in a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2XB2C23326 in the USB-C hub and it seems like it's working good Ubuntu Server auto installed it.

    Thought something was wrong with the USB-C hub so I bought another one and the 2nd one would not power up the STK2MV64CC ICS. If I pulled the USB 3.0 and plug it in as it booted some times it could boot but the other one USB-C has the power to boot the ISC up. So just have to chance it if you get one with good power out the USB-C cable on it.
