Intel Dual Band wireless ac 3165 not connecting 802.11N.


The maximum connection speed I am getting with the AC 3165 wifi is 54mbps. I have tried all the settings and updates.

Hello Kaldarbek,



We understand that the wireless connection in your system is not reaching more than 54 mbps. We would like to inform that this can happen when the system uses an older type of wireless connection, or old security protocols. Please review the following:



- Check with the manufacturer of your wireless access point. Make sure it is configured to use WPA2 security, or no security.


- Verify that your network uses 5 GHz and 802.11ac, this will allow you to get the most of your Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265.


- Apply the configuration from the document: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005544.html Recommended Settings for 802.11n Connectivity
