Thank you again! I also had the idea with two adapters but the 
APU-manual describes the two other slots (J13 and J14) explicitely as 
_not_ suitable for wifi adapters (if I understand correst):

J13 mSATA miniPCI express
/ This slot can be used for mSATA SSD, or 3G/LTE modem (USB based).
No PCI express = no wifi. Connects to SIM J2.

J14 miniPCI express
/ This slot can be used for 3G/LTE modems (USB based). No PCI express
= no wifi. Connects to SIM J1.

J15 miniPCI express
/ This slot includes PCI express, and is intended for wifi modules. No 
SIM connected.

Did you try with two adapters although?
