Wifi disconnects randomly

Hey all,

 

I have Killer® Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i 160MHz Wireless Network Adapter (201NGW), and I have random disconnects. I have udpated both wifi and bluetooth through Intel Driver Support Assistant, but sadly it hasn't helped.

It has nothing to do with my wifi, as both phone, other laptops and TV has no issues with disconnecting.
The disconnects are somewhat frequent, and they last about 10 to 30 seconds. Sometimes they are very frequent but at other times they are an hour apart or so.

I have a hard time figuring out how to troubleshoot, the only thing I have done so far is updating all drivers and troubleshooting my router, which had no issues. So now I am down to the network card.

 

Any ideas?

Best regards,

Nathalie

In this case the system doesn't show its specific model on the report so we are not able to recommend a driver version. For testing it's recommended that you use the drivers provided by the laptop manufacturer so please contact them directly to confirm which is their latest version and confirm if the BIOS is up to date. OEMs include driver customizations that intel drivers do not, sometimes they are needed for the correct operation of your device, that is why their drivers are recommended on a laptop. Also, your operating system is not up to date please complete those updates for testing.
