Hi I am having problem. I just bought new Gigabyte  Aero 15 with Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHz. I am two walls away from wifi router and althought wifi strength is shown full or four bars, internet is so slow it is unusable. 

In the same room in the same spot I get no wifi problems with iphone 11 and 5 year old macbook air.

Hello vyscop


Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. On the information provided we noticed you're not running the latest Windows version and wireless driver. 

You can update Windows first, then you can try the latest OEM drivers and Intel generic drivers found here:

Let us know the outcome.

Since this was present from day 1, the best would be to continue working with the OEM or POP for warranty options or OEM drivers for testing. If you need any additional information, please submit a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored.
