Wifi AX201 Lock Wifi Interface to 173.3Mbps (Channel Width 20MHz only)

Hi Intel,

I am From indonesia. I have issue with Wireless AC9560 and AX201 wifi card adapter. This card installed on more than 100 pcs laptop Lenovo L13 that our company have as operational staff laptop. The symtomp issue that I facing is the wifi card always lock the phisical speed connection max at (173.3Mbps, meaning advertize channel width 20MHz instead 80MHz or 160MHz).

I am also got same issue facing by other people based on this url address cases, I am using windows 10 when tested this wifi card.

https://community.intel.com/t5/Wireless/WIRELESS-AC-9260-regulatory-LAR-DRS-breaks-5ghz-functionalit...

Since 2019, Indonesia postel regulation has allowed to use bandwidth channel 20/40/80MHz, kindly advise how my Lenovo L13 can solve this issue. Not only on DELL it self, I try to bought the same model intel card from Indonesia market and I put to pc motherboard with m2 slot, and still see the issue.

Kindly advise how to disable LAR function on windows 10.

I believe issue is on your card not at wifi router and also on dell it self, because I try to snifing the packet  and see the intel card just allowed to use 20MHz channel width instead use 40/80/160MHz channel width. and also the card that selling on indonesia also got same issue.(please see the attachment).

Appreciate your support to solve this kinds of issue.

Thanks and regards,

Hamdi Ihsan

Hello  Ichanios

  

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. 

 

We will need more information to start an investigation:


  • Does this same thing happen with different drivers?
  • With the laptops, do they all use the original adapter that came pre-installed? or do you change/install new wireless cards on them?
  • Do all the laptops share the same model?
  • Have you checked if this issue happens on different networks?
  • Were you able to have the wireless connections in a normal/expected performance before?
  • Which drivers do you use for each card?


I will send you an email to the email address associated with your community profile requesting some reports that may contain sensitive information.

Hello Ichanios


Thank you for waiting.


Please share with us the following information:


  • When you say that the wifi locks, is that meaning that you can't change the channel from 20Mhz? If so, were you able to use different channel widths like 20.40 or 80 before
  • Are these new systems?
  • Did you test it using OEM drivers instead?
  • Did you ever get the systems working normally for a long period of time as expected?
  • Did you try using a different channel? (34 - 38 - 46 - 54 - 62)
