Workaround: Intel®WiFi 802.11AC adapters not connecting to WiFi 6 Routers

Depending on the Wi-Fi driver version used, Intel® Wireless Adapters supporting 802.11ac may not show Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) networks in their scan lists, and as a result, might not be able to connect to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) capable wireless routers and access points, even at 802.11ac speeds.


Intel recommends using the latest driver version (Download the latest Wi-Fi driver) for your Intel® Wireless Adapter since issues get resolved and new functionality gets added to newer driver versions.

Intel has included a fix for this particular issue in the following Wi-Fi driver versions:
