Intel wireless AC 9560 stops working

Jump to solution

I am using an Asus laptop which I had bought in Oct,2018.

It has a wireless network adapter Intel Wireless-AC9560 160MHz. The problem is it randomly stops working. 1st time i faced this issue was in around June,2020. I got freaked out and just did a system restore, and everything came back to normal.

But I started facing this issue again from starting of Oct. The adapter stops working and the wifi stops cause of it.  Error message when I go to properties:This device has stopped working (something of this sort)

I tried the following fixes of

1)"NETWORK RESET"

2)tried Uninstalling the driver and restarting the system and reinstalling the driver

3)updating the driver to latest version

Well , sometimes these fixes work and sometimes they dont and I end up spending hours fixing this without getting any results and it randomly starts working again or the above fixes works instantly.

Current version installed is -21.120.2.1.

If my adapter is fried I would change it , but if it is a software bug please suggest a stable version with a link.
