Intel Dual Bank Wireless-AC 8265 keeps failing

I have a Lenovo A940  Yoga All in One that has the AC8265 installed.  The AC8265 keeps failing.  The drivers have been updated.  I keep control panel open and the 8426 randomly disappears.  I installed a WIFI booster in the house in case the signal was weak.  Finally I purchased a new laptop and there are no issues and they run side by side.

Is there a replacement part that can be purchased?  I have given up on trying to get support from Lenovo or Intel for the 8265

In most cases (you need to check with your laptop vendor), the Wireless-AC 8265 card can be replaced with an Intel WiFi 6 AX200 card (these cost approx. US$18; see here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TLBNSZQ). This will upgrade you with 2.4 Gb/s Wireless-AX, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 support.

Enjoy!

You should mark my original answer as the correct answer so that Intel Customer Support knows the issue is resolved.
