Hi all.

Here looking for help after 48 caos, my WIFI addapter was working fine until sudently stop working showing Internet Connected Not Secured, after test different workarounds, router reset and event windows reinstallation,  I finally found that it only happends with 5Ghz Band, connected to 2.4 GHz works fine.

I have tested with Drivers 22.60.0.6, 22.50.x, 22.40.x with same results

 

Any clue or suggestion on this?

Hi Cambes, Thank you very much for providing that information and the SSU report.

 

Based on the SSU information, the wireless driver version currently installed on your system is 22.60.0.6, where did you get that driver from?

 

Just to let you know, we always recommend to install the wireless driver provided by the manufacturer of the computer, since that driver was customized by them to work with your specific platform. 

 

I looked in Gigabyte's website and unfortunately, they do no have wireless drivers available:

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-ULTRA-GAMING-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver-audio

 

So, even though you mentioned that you already tested driver version 22.50.x, to make sure, what we can try in this case will be a clean installation of Intel® generic wireless driver version 22.50.1.1 following the instructions in the link below:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000022173/wireless/intel-wireless-gigabit-p...

 

Additionally, we recommend to get in contact directly with Gigabyte to make sure the latest BIOS version is currently installed in your platform or to gather the instructions on how to do that:

Not necessarily true @Cambes; if you do a clean install, you should be able to return to these previous versions(s).

Here is the full and proper process for performing a clean WLAN Install: 

  1. If you haven't already, download - but do not install just yet - the Bluetooth and WiFi drivers you desire to install for your adapter. Here are links to the latest drivers if you need them: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30434 and https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30515.
  2. Disable Internet access. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable wireless. Keep disabled until told to re-enable.
  3. From the Apps & Features applet, check for instances of Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel Wireless Bluetooth. If none, skip to Step 6.
  4. Uninstall each instance of Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel Wireless Bluetooth that is present. When prompted, choose to "Discard Settings".
  5. Manually reboot your computer, keeping Internet access disabled throughout.
  6. From the Device Manager applet, check under Network Adapters for an entry for Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200. If none, go to Step 9.
  7. Right click on the entry for Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 and uninstall it, choosing to (checkmark) Delete the driver software for this device.
  8. Go back to Step 5.
  9. (Optional but recommended) Clean out all temporary files using the Windows Clean Disk tool. I recommend that you checkmark all categories offered, even if no files currently (so it leaves it set up for next invocation).
  10. (Optional but recommended) Clear each of your browsers' cache.
  11. Install the Bluetooth driver package (rule: always do Bluetooth first).
  12. Install the Wireless driver package.
  13. Manually shutdown and reboot your computer.
  14. Enable Internet access.
  15. Test.

Hope this helps (it's certainly better stated and more complete than the Intel instructions),

Hi @Alberto_R_Intel Roberto & @n_scott_pearson n_scott

 

After driving in circles with this issue in my head, I think already figure out a workaround, long short story:

 

Install Merlin Firmware to my ASUS Router
Assign the 20 Mhz to Band 2.4 channel
Assign the 40 Mhz Band to 5.0 channel
Disable to use 80 Mhz Band

Now all connects fine without problems, still not quite sure if this will impacts the performance into my local network, I'm not familiar with these settings at all, but it is finally wortking for now.

 

Thanks

Hi Cambes, Thank you very much for sharing those results.

 

Perfect, excellent, it is great to hear that the problem got fixed after trying the steps below and after that, the wireless connection and the Internet service are now working properly on the 5GHz band:  

Install Merlin Firmware to my ASUS Router

Assign the 20 Mhz to Band 2.4 channel

Assign the 40 Mhz Band to 5.0 channel

Disable to use 80 Mhz Band

 

Thank you very much also for sharing the solution in the Intel® forums, we are sure it will be very helpful and useful for all the peers viewing this thread.

 

Any other inquires, do not hesitate to contact us again.

 

Regards,

Albert R.

Of course, none of this should have been necessary. Intel needs to fix the drivers and firmware so that this works seamlessly with default settings.

Just saying,
