WiFi connection issues

Laptop: HP ProBook 650 G5, has issues with wireless connection. Wireless adapter: Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHZ. The machine is able to connect to mobile hotspot and connect to the internet without issue. However, when connecting to home or office WiFi, it will successfully connect to the SSID, but unable to reach the internet. The machine is not able to receive a DHCP address on the home or office WiFi leading to the inability to connect to internet. I'm able to set the IP address information statically and am then able to connect, but this is not a permanent solution.

I've verified that other devices on the home and office WiFi are able to receive IP addresses without issue, so it is a not a DHCP server problem. I have utilized driver version 22.10.0.7 and latest release 22.20.0.6, issue persists.

Any insight/assistance is appreciated.

Hello rmckellar,  

  

We have not heard back from you, so we will close this inquiry. As the problem seems to be con IP assignment, this does not seem to be related to the Intel wireless adapter or drivers. You may check with your ISP or AP manufacturer if our recommendations did not work; Microsoft* could also provide additional support on this.  

 

If you need further assistance or if you have additional questions, please create a new thread and we will gladly assist you.
