MSI Z590 Pro Wifi with Intel 6E AX210 frequent dropouts and slow speeds



A few months ago I built a new desktop. Motherboard is a MSI Z590 Pro Wifi which has an Intel 6E AX210 wifi card built in.

Until now it's ran smoothly, however in the last few days the internet has been repeatedly dropping out and reconnecting every 2-10 minutes.

The issue only affects my desktop PC. All other devices in the house have no connectivity issues.

I had my ISP send out a technician today that verified there are no issues with the router or on the ISPs end.

I've tried:

- Reinstalling the wifi drivers from MSI's website, using the updated drivers from MSI's website, and also tried Intel's drivers direct from the Intel website (all driver uninstalls/reinstalls followed by a reboot of the PC)

- I've changed the power saving settings so that it won't turn off the adapter

- I've tried switching to 802.11ac rather than ax (router doesn't support ax).

- I've tried having the router only broadcast on a single channel rather than automatically select a channel

- Rebooted the router several times


The internet also works fine with an external wifi antenna via USB.  Which leads me to believe this issue is isolated to the onboard wifi.
