Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160 MHz disconnects randomly (Code 10)


Hi there.
I got a very weird issue with the PCIe Network Card I bought recently.


When I start my PC the network adapter works perfectly fine.

But sometimes it randomly disconnects, meaning that I cant find any network devices to connect to anymore.

In the device manager I then see a yellow exclamation mark next to the "Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160 MHz" and it gives a "Code 10" error.

When I refresh the devices in the device manager the device becomes hidden and the error-code changes to "code 45".


After restarting my PC, often the network adapter starts working again. 

The error doesn't occure after a specific time. Sometimes the card works fine over the entire day and sometimes it disconnects inbetween my work.

Also I didn't notice starting any of my programs leds to this error. 

Just sometimes when I start the PC from standby mode it already is disconnected.


I tried installing the driver provided with the Network Card, but also the latest drivers from the intel Website. But I always run into the same issue.

The manufacturer of the network card also sent me a replacement one, in case it was broken. But the issue persists.


I really don't know what to do anymore. 

Maybe someone here has a tip, how I can get it running without the issue.


I ran the Intel System Support Utility Software when the error occured last time and attached the file here.


Thank you very much for your help!
