Wi-Fi AX201 Bluetooth mouse freeze

Hi,

 

I have an ASUS ZenBook laptop with AX201 WI-Fi 6 module + integrated BT 5.0 and a Logitech MX Anywhere 3 bluetooth mouse.

 

Every 10-20 seconds, the mouse pointer freezes for about 1-2 seconds, even if i move it continously (so it does not eneter bluetooth sleep mode). On each freeze, it seems that the commands are buffered (i.e. if I click on the mouse buttons or scroll the wheel during the freeze, the commands are then executed after unfreeze).

This is very annoying and makes my experience very bad with Intel Wireless Bluetooth products, practically the mouse is useless in gaming especially.

 

I tested the same mouse with a USB bluetooth adapter and there are no freezes there. Only the integrated BT adapter gives me those very frequent freezes.

 

I have the latest Intel Wireless Bluetooth driver 22.70.2 installed on Windows 10 21H1.

 

What should I do next? Is this a known issue with this Wi-Fi 6 card?

 

Thanks,

Mihai

Thanks Deivid. The suggestion from the Dell forum seems to have been working fine in the last 24 hours. No freezing seen anymore.

For the moment I will use this as a workaround and meanwhile waiting for a future proper fix if available. Not sure if this has any side-effects.

Hello SilverGreen93, 

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

  


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


  


1. Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.  


· Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/18377/25293/intel-system-support-utility-for-window... 


· Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  


· To save your scan, click Next and click Save.  



2. Is this issue recent? If som when did it started?


3. Is the Wi-Fi working properly?


4. Have you reported the issue to Asus?




Regards,

Thanks for the reply.

 

1. Here is the SSU log (attached)

 

2. The laptop is brand new. This issue is from beginning, the only thing I've done is to update the Intel BT driver from 22.60.0 to 22.70.2, because it is stated in the Release notes that "On some systems, Bluetooth mouse movement may not be smooth", which may be related to my issue, although it is clearly not fixed in this version.

 

3. Yes, I have no issues with the Wi-Fi

 

4. I haven't reported to Asus, due to the fact that as stated in the release notes, it is most probabily an Intel Driver issue.

 

Thanks,

Mihai

Hi Deivid,

 

I tried the following versions (clean installed, rebooted PC):

BT 21.90.2.1 - Asus

BT 22.10.0.2 - Asus

BT 22.30.0.4 - Asus

BT 22.70.2 - Intel

 

All of them have the same issue.

 

No other update available in Asus app. Bios is up-to-date.

Hello SilverGreen93, 



To resolve the issue you are experiencing, you might need a BIOS fix from your Laptop manufacturer or a potential bug fix in the Windows 10 OS. While we request you to contact your laptop manufacturer for the latest BIOS updates and fix; Intel is working with Microsoft to find a resolution for the issue with similar symptoms. However, if an OS (operating system) fix is required then this might take time. 


Meanwhile, some other users reported a workaround and we notice that you've confirmed it works for your system:


- https://community.intel.com/t5/Wireless/Intel-i7-Gen-11-Bluetooth-issues/m-p/1274894#M35317



Also, you can try the following:



1. Check if the latest Asus drivers are installed.


2. Check that the latest BIOS is installed.


3. Check with Asus for further support if the previous steps did not work.

This registry fix seems to work for me. Mouse is now responsive with no delays.

I have Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 hardware with the exact same problem.

The latest version of the driver (22.70.2) acknowledges the problem in the release notes and state the issue has been fixed.

However after installing this driver the problem still occurs.

The only 'solution' I have found is to play music through my Bluetooth headset - this seems to stop the problem.

I believe the issue is due to 'aggressive power management' of driver/firmware.

Lets hope Intel can be bothered to fix this issue.

Hi @Simon8 

The Windows update KB5005611 was able to significantly reduce the lagging problem, but no hint in the list of bug fixes. However, there are still small delays in mouse movement, when clicking or when scrolling. When writing there are no longer endless repetitions of characters, but from time to time there are double letters instead of one.

When I play music on the bluetooth speaker, not the slightest problem. When I use BT mouse and keyboard on other notebooks, an absolutely flawless and fluid work experience.

I also tried the Registry-Hack. It solved the problems, but my notebook got warmer, even in Standby. So I reverted the Reg-Settings.

My thread can be found here.

FYI: Playing music prevents the Bluetooth module (attached to motherboard) from going into suspend state.

The 'registry hack' only prevents the Bluetooth module from using the 'Selective Suspend' feature, so I doubt it will cause any thermal issues (i.e. cpu usage!). I have not noticed any on my system. Also the entries do not seem to cause any issues with my laptop going to sleep as normal.

More info can be found at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/usbcon/selective-suspend-in-usb-drivers-wd...

When I view the devices by connections, the registry customization applies to the host controller and all of the devices under it (like Bluetooth). That would explain why Intel attributes the problem to USB: "This behavior of the Bluetooth mouse and its symptoms seem to indicate one of 2 problems related to USB."

I'm not a technician, but the fact that users have been reporting this problem for months in several forums and it has still not been satisfactorily resolved makes me a little suspicious.

No, that is not correct. The registry entries apply only to the Bluetooth module NOT the USB host controller. "VID_8087&PID_0026" identifies the Intel Bluetooth module (you can verify this by checking the properties in device manager).

Hi @Simon8 

Yes you are right. Was it not possible in the past to make these settings for the BT adapter directly via the GUI?
