Hi,

I am using MSI GL63 laptop. I have a modem of 200MBPS and it has 2 bandwidth 2.5GHZ and 5GHZ. 5Ghz is connected to my laptop but it's speed is too much slow as compared to 2.5GHz. I have checked in other devices where the 5GHZ is working perfectly but with this laptop it troubles me. Earlier i was using windows 10 ,i faced the issue then i upgraded to windows 11 , However the problem still persists.

I have package of 200mbps but i get 2 Mbps download speed while connected to 5GZ and in 2.5 GHZ i get around 80Mbps.

Please help me on this.

Hello, @Muntazim

 

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® Wireless-AC 9560 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 fine with the original/preinstalled wi-fi card in the laptop? 
  3. What is the name of test you are using to get the download and upload speeds? 

 

Best regards,  

Jocelyn M.

Hello, @Muntazim

 

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.

Hello Muntazim, 



Thanks for your confirmation. In this case, if this issue with the 5GHz band is only happening with this laptop and no other device is having the same problem, may suggest a hardware issue with the laptop.


If you already tried the latest driver from Intel and from the laptop manufacturer, I recommend you to check with the laptop manufacturer to confirm if they place any speed restriction on their laptop or if there is any malfunction with the card.


As additional information, you may find the following article helpful.
