ax200 speed drop on Ax router

i have been using ax200 for a while now 

 

but when i connect it to an AX router

 

the speed is great But after few hours the speed goes down significantly

 

the only solution is to disable the wifi card and enable it again which solve it for a short period of time

win10 on 21.30.3

Hello abogrhen,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

When performing a clean installation of the wireless drivers, we recommend using these steps:

 

Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers

 

It is recommended to perform a clean installation of both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers.

 

Intel® Wireless Bluetooth® version: 21.30.0

Windows® 10 Wi-Fi Drivers version: 21.30.3

 

Please let us know if the issue persists if you follow these steps.

5 laptops uses the ax200 the other 2 uses other cards

2 routers are the same netgear rax120 the other 2 are asus and d-link

 

all the 7 laptops don't have problem with other 2 router( ASUS and D-LINK )

 

the 2 laptops with non intel card don't have problem with netgear

the 5 laptops with intel cards have the same problem as my pc as they connect at full speed but after some time the speed drops significantly

Hello abogrhen,

 

We would like to gather more information based on your findings. 

 

1. 5 laptops with Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200. 

 

Did they come with the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 preinstalled? Did you perform a hardware integration on these systems?

 

2. Make sure both the laptops and the RAX120 routers are using the the same Wi-Fi standard and configuration. 

 

  • Right-click Start in the bottom left corner.
  • Click Device Manager.
  • Click the > sign to expand the Network adapters entry.
  • Right-click the wireless adapter and click Properties.
  • Click the Advanced tab to configure the advanced settings.
  • Make sure the 802.11n/ac/ax Wireless Mode or HT Mode is set to 802.11ax to enable 802.11ax data rates. 
  • Check this configuration on the router, too.

 

3. If the issue persists, try using the VHT mode or 802.11ac standard on both the laptop and the router for testing purposes.

for the 5 laptops the ax200 was preinstalled

the configuration was as you mentioned

 

i tried to set to AC only mode but still happened

 

also today

i tried on one laptop the killer newer driver to test (21.40.2.2)

the speed drop still happen but less frequently than before in 10 hours one time

so i think it is SW compatibility problem between the two

 

also if you continuously uploading or downloading the problem disappear

as soon as the connection idle for some time the speed drop

Hello abogrhen,

 

Since the 5 laptops came with the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 preinstalled, we would like to know if this problem happens while using the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) drivers or the generic drivers available at the Download Center. Having speed issues or any other behavior in more than 5 systems usually means that there is a driver, OS, or compatibility issue.

 

If this problem occurs while running both OEM and generic drivers, then there could be an issue with the integration performed by the system manufacturer in these computers. These systems may need to have a specific setting (BIOS, OS, etc.) configured in order to alleviate it.

 

For these reasons, our recommendation is that you can contact your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and report this problem so that they can try to reproduce it or contact the router manufacturer or Intel if needed.

OEM and generic drivers are used for all and from different manufacturer ( Razer-dell-lenovo )

they are coworker laptops that i asked for to test and all of them don't have an AX router so they did not notice the problem

 

the problem happened first on a desktop pc where I have upgraded the wifi card to the ax200 so i don't think it is "issue with the integration performed by the system manufacturer in these computers "

 

i have contacted netgear and there is multiple people in there forum facing the same problem with ax200 when used with RAX120

Hello abogrhen,

 

Performing wireless integrations is subject to country-specific legal regulations. Before installing or changing the Intel® Wireless Adapter, Intel recommends that you contact the system manufacturer to obtain approval, step-by-step instructions, and support. It is worth mentioning that the integration may or may not work. It may also cause other performance issues due to the following reasons:

 

1. Hardware/software compatibility issues or dependencies.

2. Manufacturer limitations.

3. Driver limitations.

 

We definitely understand the points you have made on this thread, but we recommend you to work with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) first to determine if they can reproduce this issue and try to contact the router manufacturer.

 

It is worth mentioning that this problem could be related to your environment and network configuration.

I got the same problem from Intel AX200 with Netgear RAX120. The speed drop is terrible.

I am regret why don't I search this post before buying.

Just like to say the Clean Install instructions vastly improved my speeds. Now I'm getting 500 down / 600 up on an Asus AX11000
