Intel Wireless AC 9560 160mhz adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related problems

I keep getting the error "intel wireless ac 9560 "160mhz" adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related problems." I've tried a Windows reinstall, installing the drivers again, installing the Wireless Proset software again. It sometimes worked intermittently after driver re-installations and then stopped again, however now it just wont work at all.

 

 

I do also get this issue in event viewer:

 

Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9DF0&SUBSYS_00348086&REV_30\3&11583659&0&A3 had a problem starting.

 

Driver Name: netwtw06.inf

Class Guid: {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}

Service: Netwtw06

Lower Filters: 

Upper Filters: vwifibus

Problem: 0xA

Problem Status: 0xC0000001

 

I really don't know what else to do here, any ideas?

 

Device Info:

Asus Q536FD Laptop

Windows 1903

Hello JWint15,

 

Thank you for posting your question on this Intel® Community.

 

  • When did this issue start?
  • Has anything changed on the computer since that time? For example, has the access point or environment changed?
  • Did the Intel® Wireless adapter come pre-installed in your computer?
  • Are the Wi-Fi AP (i.e. wireless router) and your client (computer) using the same Wi-Fi standard and configuration?
  • Do other computers have the same issue, or is it just this computer? For example, do all computers on the same network have the same issue?

 

  • Generate a system report with the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) and attach the report directly to this thread.
  1. Intel® SSU Download link
  2. Open the application and click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel® SSU takes you to the "Summary View".
  3. Click on "Summary" to change to a "Detailed View".
  4. To save your scan, click on "Next", then "Save".

Thank you for your response.

 

According to the report, you are running the latest generic Windows* 10 Wi-Fi Driver for Intel® Wireless Adapters. This issue might have started after installing generic drivers available at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/. Although these drivers usually include fixes to some issues reported on this Intel® Community, we recommend that you install the latest Bluetooth and Wi-Fi drivers provided by your computer vendor. These drivers are usually customized to ensure system functionality.

 

We suggest that you perform a Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers. It is recommended to clean install both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi drivers.

Unfortunately, none of the mentioned steps helped. I currently have a USB adapter plugged in to be a workaround.

I turned the device back on to check the status in device manager. After unplugging the USB dongle and re-enabling the Intel WiFi, it appears to be working now for whatever reason. I will wait a few days and see if any issues re-occur.
