T14 Wireless AX201 speed issues

2021-09-03, 1:11 AM

This T14 has been nothing but problems. The Intel AX201 isn't capable of getting faster than 160Mbps on wireless. My home internet is 1Gbps. All other devices in the home are fine. Drivers are all up to date. Tried uninstalling. Messed around with adapter properties to not use AX and instead use AC, channel bandwidths, nothing works. Is this a known issue with this model?

I wouldn't call 160 Mbps fast, given that usable bandwidth with WiFi 6 (AX) can be up to 1 Gbps (when using 5 GHz). But it's important to note that that's under ideal conditions. Personally, with a properly configured AX access point, in an apartment setting with various other WiFi networks around, I've typically been getting 300-400 Mbps.

 

Unless you're able to get much more than 160 Mbps using other client devices, the most likely culprit is your network IMO. I'd make sure you're using 5 GHz, make sure your AP is configured for AC or AX, make sure you have good signal strength, check for interference from other WiFi networks or other devices that emit EM, maybe try different channels.

It all depends on you available bandwidth...
