Hello, @JipJop

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I will gladly assist you here. 

 

Please, answer these questions to have a better perspective of this issue: 

 

  1. Is the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 the pre-installed wi-fi card in your motherboard or is it an integration (upgrade/ not the original card in the laptop)? 
  2. Was it working before? 
  3. What is the name of the test you are using to get the download and upload speeds? 

 

Best regards,

Hello, @JipJop

 

Thank you for the information provided. 

 

In this case, perform a Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers, using the latest wireless driver

 

Note #1: Make sure to check you have all the Windows updates before doing the driver installation. Also, make sure to do this step disconnected from the internet (wi-fi or wired connection) since Microsoft updates drivers automatically and prevents doing the clean installation successfully. 

 

Note #2: Since this is a laptop, we recommend checking with your System Manufacturer and using the driver software provided by them to avoid potential installation incompatibilities. Intel supplies generic versions of Graphics Drivers for general purposes. Computer manufacturers might have changed the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging.
