Intel Dual band AC7260, driver verison 18.104.22.168
Running PROset V. 22.214.171.124 and despite having my wifi profiles saved properly, 9 out of 10 times they do not connect automatically and even choosing to connect to them manually they won't connect. I have to right click on PROset in the system tray and choose "reset PROset" for it to work. Anyone else having this problem or is there any fix for this? I have tried numerous version of proset as well as adapter drivers from the Dell site but none seem to work
Uninstall ProSet from Control Panel. Restart.
In the advanced properties of the adapter, try these:
802.11n Channel Width (band 2.4/band 5.2) Both Auto
Ad Hoc Channel 802.11 b/g 1
Ad Hoc QoS Mode WMM Enabled
ARP ofload for WoWLAN Enabled
Bluetooth® AMP Enabled
Fat Channel Intolerant Disabled
GTK rekeying for WoWLan Enabled
HT Mode VHT Mode
Mixed Mode Protection CTS-to-self Enabled
NS offload for WoWLAN Enabled
Preferred Band Whichever. I don't think it matters.
Roaming Aggressiveness Medium
Sleep on WoWLAN Disconnect Disabled
Throughput booster Disabled
Transmit Power Highest
U-APSD support. Enabled (Some peeps need to disable this for better speed--I don't know why.)
Wake on Magic Packet Enabled
Wake on Pattern Match Enabled
Wireless Mode 802.11 a/b/g
In the Power Management tab, set "Allow the computer to turn off this device" to ENABLED. It's counterintuitive, but just do it.
Try these router settings:
11bgn mixed mode
Channel width auto
SSID broadcast yes
Short GI enabled
Client isolation disabled
11a/n/ac mixed mode
Channel width Auto
SSID broacast yes
After wasting hours fighting with it I switched to Windows Wireless Connection Manager and my problems have ended for good!
You need about 10 seconds to switch and end the suffering
