Hello 12gauge,

Here are some actions that may help improve WiFi connectivity:

1. Make sure you https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25833/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windo... Download Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows® 10, and install the latest driver.

 

2. Apply the configuration mentioned in the advisory: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005544.html?wa... Recommended Settings for 802.11n Connectivity

3. Disable Bluetooth in your PC. This is normally done with a switch in the PC chassis, or with a key combination.

4. If the issue persists, try disabling some Windows 10 technologies that may interfere with WiFi and test the connection again.

I have just the same problem on an Intel Compu Stick.

Has your problem solved on the way of Jonathan?
