AZW/Beelink Z83-II Intel Z-8350 Windows 10 2GB/32GB

NOT RECOMMEND FOR MVC 3D KODI

I bought the Z83-II box to use as a dedicated Windows 3D MVC Kodi streamer as it is fanless, it should be able to do MVC 3D with MSDK Kodi build and PCM encoded surround sound.  I could not get 3D to work with this box, I have seen others with Z-8300 having problems with 3D only working with specific drivers.  I did not have the time for this and the box is now used as a general purpose machine.

Z83II on Amazon.co.uk, can be purchased cheaper if you order direct from China.

Specifications

The spec of the computer is quite good for around £75:

  • OS: Windows 10 Home
  • Intel CPU: Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Processor (2M Cache, up to 1.92 GHz)
  • Processor Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 400
  • Installed RAM: DDR3 2GB
  • System Disk: (C:) 32GB
  • Ethernet: 1000Mbps LAN
  • WIFI: IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n,2.4G+5.8G
  • Bluetooth: BT 4.0
  • Antenna: Built-in antenna for WIFI
  • Expand Memory: SD Card (Support 128GB)

Summary

You are on your own with this box as AWZ (Beelink) removed all support from their website and removed references to it from the forums.

So there are no downloadable drivers, configured OS image and firmware seems to have more reports of it bricking units than succeeding.

If you do a clean install you will probably not be able to get the WiFi working, due to the lack of downloadable drivers, some people have had success using the Beelink BT3 drivers.

UPDATE: Try the following Z83II – Broadcom 802.11 Adapter Wifi Driver, it is now working on the device.

Good Luck

  1. Hi.

    When I’ve downloaded the z83ii-broadcom-802-11-adapter.zip file, how can I install the drivers if I have Ubuntu installed on my Z83?

    Thank you very much.

  2. Thanks so much for your WiFI driver upload to WordPress! I had to re-install the driver as well on mine, but I do have all the drivers for this box in a self run install batch file, a one click and it grabs everything and installs the drivers via run command, it was once from their site. I have two of these boxes and they were great for simple tasks and also some big ones I threw at it, it is not a desktop machine for sure but great for Kodi, email and web browsing. I thank you again for the upload!

  3. The website with the drivers was removed by the time I bought this, I got the file from the community but it did not get the Wi-Fi working. This machine was given to a family member and now performs the duties you mention and it is an excellent machine for that.
