HP Envy Laptop and WiFi 6 AX210 160MHz Roaming Issue

I am working on a brand new HP Envy laptop running Windows 11 and have run into an issue with the Intel WiFi 6 AX210 160MHz  adapter. 

 

If I set the Roaming Aggressiveness  to anything other than Low the following happens.

The laptop will connect to the Wi-Fi network and will begin transmitting data (running ping command in CMD window) and I get results then after a period of time (random 20 seconds to a minute or so) they ping command starts failing.  I look at the Wi-Fi status and it shows connected but no Internet.  I open another CMD window and run IPCONFIG and I see that the adapter no longer has an IP address assigned.  At this point no matter what I do (disconnect/reconnect, disconnect connect to different network) I cannot get the Wi-Fi to properly function. If I set the roaming aggressiveness to low I do not have any issue.

 

I updated the WiFi 6 AX210 160MHz  driver to the latest version on the Intel site (version: 22.110.1.1 dated 2022-01-02) but still get the same results.

 

I am connecting to TP-LINK access points and have other laptops connected without any issues.

 

Any ideas?

AlanK, Thank you very much for proving that information and the SSU report.


Based on the SSU document, we can confirm, as you mentioned, that the wireless driver version currently installed on your computer is 22.110.1.1, provided by Intel®:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19351/windows-10-and-windows-11-wi-fi-drivers-for-i...


Just to let you know, the Intel® Wireless drivers are generic, meaning that they might or might not work on your machine. Based on that, we always recommend to install the wireless drivers provided by the manufacturer of the laptop, since those drivers were heavily customized by them to work with your specific platform.


I looked on Dell's website and the latest wireless driver version they have available in there is 22.60.0.6 Rev.A. Please try a clean installation of that driver following the instructions in the links below:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000022173/wireless.html


Also, we recommend to get in contact directly with Dell support to confirm that the latest BIOS version is currently installed in your system or, if necessary, to gather the instructions on how to do that:

I worked with HP support and they had me perform a Windows 11 reset via the cloud and after doing that everything worked.  It appears that it put the same version of the driver (22.110.1.1) on without upgrading it from the 22.60.0.6 version.  I am wondering if something happened during the upgrade that caused the issue since I had already performed a local reset of Windows 11 then tried to upgrade the driver.

 

At this point everything is working.

AlanK, Thank you very much for letting us know those results.


"I worked with HP support and they had me perform a Windows 11 reset via the cloud and after doing that everything worked":

Perfect, excellent, it is great to know that after the Windows* 11 reset the roaming issue got fixed and now everything is working properly.


"I am wondering if something happened during the upgrade that caused the issue since I had already performed a local reset of Windows 11 then tried to upgrade the driver.":

Yes, probably that is what happened since there are a lot of changes done every time a Windows update is performed.


Any other inquiries, do not hesitate to contact us again.
