From a system dump, it looks like Bluetooth and WiFi are via the very popular for 2014 Broadcom BCM4354.

I doubt the FM antenna pin will be connected to the wired headset jack like the Nexus One (HTC Desire). But as my sig implies, I'd be very happy if so.

I was going to post actually, because at home I have both 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz SSIDs and the Nexus9 will not see the 5Ghz SSID.

Has anyone connected to a WiFi network on 5GHz with the Nexus 9 ?

It works on mine at 5GHz but I think it has to do with the limitation of the channels that the Nexus 9 will detect and connect to. Try using the lower channels like 36/44/48

So, once I changed the channel, everything was dandy !

However, one more question on Wi-Fi. Connect to a WiFi network that requires Sign-In doesn't appear to work on the Nexus 9. My Nexus 5 beside it, once I click on the notification, takes me to the web page to sign in.

The Nexus 9, takes me to a white screen with a Blue Header entitled 'Sign-in to network' and then does nothing

If I fire up Chrome manually, it takes me to the Sign-In page.

So this is another bug. I have this, too. Also, 802.1x Auth doesn't work with the N9.
