AX200 unable to connect using 802.11 ax and 802.11 ac



I've recently had issues regarding my Intel WiFi 6 AX200 160MHz connecting to a BT Hub 6, the issue started yesterday where I would intermittently be disconnected from the internet and then it would automatically reconnect, however this got worse to the point where it would no longer connect.

Using the built in windows 10 trouble-shooter I got the message that I’m unable to obtain a valid IP address.

I managed to get a stable connection over 5GHz by switching to 802.11n and leaving the setting on Dual band 802.11 a/b/g, so far this has remained stable.

If I switch to 802.11 ax and 802.11 ac  I get the error message that I'm unable to obtain a valid IP address.

I have read a few forum posts about similar issues but nothing that matches mine exactly.

I have followed some basic troubleshooting steps such as resetting the router, restarted the PC several times, I've reinstalled my drivers with the latest intel drivers, I've done a clean install twice and I've also tried older drivers to see if there was some kind of compatability issue all to no avail.

I am not super familar with networking issues as I have been lucky to have not encountered many, however it seems to be that running on 802.11n means my internet is then slower than running at either of the two other modes and I have a package that offers up to 320 Mbps.

Having ran speed tests on other devices I can confirm that my PC is currently showing half the speed of my phone or other devices.

Appreciate any help I can get on this issue!
