Intel Wifi 6E AX210 160MHz keeps disconnecting

I recently bought a new laptop equipped with the Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210 160MHz wireless adapter. When connected to my 5MHz router, it keeps disconnecting. When I check the driver properties in device manager, it shows "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". Uninstalling the device and scanning for hardware changes temporarily fixes the issue. However after a while, Wi-Fi either starts disconnecting and connecting back to the network, or crashes with a Code 43 again. It seems stable while connected to the 2.4Ghz network.

My laptop specifications and details are as follows: 

  • Razer Blade 15 Advanced (Mid-2021)
  • Intel 11th gen i7-11800H
  • RTX 3070
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 1 TB SSD
  • Intel Wifi 6E AX210 160MHz
  • Bios Razer 1.10

Fixes attempted:

  • Reset the laptop using windows reset, removing all files
  • Upgraded drivers from 22.80.1.1 to the latest version, but disconnections got worse so I rolled it back.

Hello SanaulMalik,


Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. In order to have a better understanding of the issue, please share with us the following information: 


  1. Was it working before? If yes, when did the issue start happening?
  2. Have you reported the issue to the OEM?
  3. Have you tried using the drivers provided by the OEM?


Also, please download and install the Intel System Support Utility (Intel SSU):

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- 

Open the application and select "Everything" click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel SSU will take you to the "Summary View". Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  

Click on "Next", save the report and attach it to your response.

Thank you for the reply, Josue. 

In response to your queries,

  1.  This laptop is only a week old. It has been happening since the first day.
  2. I have only recently opened a support ticket with Razer, still waiting for a response.
  3. I wasn't able to find any drivers in the downloads section of the Razer website.

 

Please find attached the requested device information.

Also I'm not sure if this is related to the drivers, but my laptop has BSOD'd twice over the last week. I've also tried testing to see if the driver fails under load by downloading a large file, but there was no issue as such. It appears to fail at random times, and has been working fine for the past two days.

Hello Josue,

The driver was stable for 2 days. However, it has started crashing again. At the moment I can't even stay connected for 2 minutes to the 5GHz network without the driver crashing. However, it is stable when connected to the 2.4GHz network.

Hello Josue,

 

It crashed once again. I hope it's okay if I re-install the antivirus.
