I'm guessing they're planning to release a wifi-enabled version of the board, so they left a spot for it so they don't have to redo their manufacturing.

So you can install a WiFi module in the E-key M.2 slot and use the holes for the antennas.

These are for an internal wifi card so that you can attach external antenna to the back of the motherboard for better reception.

It appears to have an M.2 socket dedicated for WiFi, and page 38 of the manual gives you instructions on how to install a module. However, the board, itself, doesn't come with a preinstalled module.

It doesn't have any wifi capabilities, those holes are there in case you wanted to install an m.2 pcie card

PSA: No, I didn't waste all that money on computers, (except the main one) my server cost $40, the intel NUC was my old PC (although then it had 8GB of ram, I gave the bigger stick of ram to a person who really needed it), my laptop is used and the second PC is really cheap.

I like tinkering with computers and have a personal hatred towards phones and everything they represent (I daily drive an iPhone 7, or a 6, depends on which one works that day)

probably, though the motherboard does support m.2 key e wifi, is it possible that they have it set up so wifi can be routed using those holes instead of the mounts it comes with??
