P51s WIFI not working after Jan 2020 Windows 10 update

2020-01-20, 0:17 AM

Intel duel band wireless AC 8265 WIFI not working after recent Windows 10 critical update. I uninstalled update and wifi works again. Is there a way to fix the wifi issue with the AC8265, so that I can install the update which remedies a security vulnerability?

Thank you.

It is not the first time that Windows 10 update remove user files.

Try to reinstall the wireless driver (should be something like "Intel Dual Band network" or something)

Had a similar problem, after looking online, there are a few recommended solutions to try

1) As mentioned, try to install the network driver again

- so download the driver first, then install the windows update, then install the driver again.

2) Do a network reset, i.e. go to settings, network and internet, scroll to bottom and select network reset (this one worked for me)

- note, this will cause all your previously connected networks to be "lost" (i.e. need to join the networks again)

3) if the above 2 doesn't help, chances are there is a bug that affects your particular software, so you will need to wait until there is a fix.
