Re: Wifi 6 AX201 160MHz Adapter Performance

Hi!!!

 

How do I get more reach and performance out of this adapter?

I have a 2021 (Gen7) HP-Zbook Fury w/ Windows 10 and this adapter is good but I have an old MacAir (2015) This MacAir Wifi Adapter can see everything despite it being designed for low power.

 

How can this Broadcom adapter, BCM43xx 1.0 (7.77.111.1 AirPortDriverBrcmNIC-1710.4) be better than Intel's? I never update this MacAir adapter but Intel updates it's products sometimes several times a week. See screenshots

Hello Residentx,  


  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I am sorry to know that you are having issues with your Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201.   

  


In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  


1. Is this the original adapter that came pre-installed on your computer or did you change/install the adapter to this one?   

2. To confirm, you mentioned that the MAC adapter has a better performance than the Intel adapter, is that right?

3. Are you using the MAC adapter on your HP laptop?

4. Can you provide more details about your issue?


Regards,  

Deivid A.

This is the base Windows 10 settings for the adapter. I'll break out each later.
