Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen, loosing wifi gateway after SLEEP

By the way, the versions of the packages on the intel site do not directly correspond to the driver versions.  One package has three or four different drivers in it with different versions for each driver.

 

You need to look at the release notes for each package to see which drivers are in it.

I only had the Microsoft driver available [20.50.0.5] as an alternate choice and it has been working great now for 3 days!

It's very old for me, like over a year old. But I will try.

Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen, loosing wifi gateway after SLEEP

There is an alternative solution that doesn't require rolling drivers back.

In the Bios (hit Enter when computer booting), under the power settings, the power saving mode can be changed to Linux rather than Windows 10, and that seems to also work. I don't know what the implications are in terms of power usage, but thought I would mention it as a potential solution as well.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, worked for a few sleeps and now it seems to be back to not working...

Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen, loosing wifi gateway after SLEEP

Issue seems to be fixed with latest Intel release (for Wireless-AC 8265). 

 

Driver date; 2019-06-29

 

Driver version: 20.70.11.3

 

Just start Device Manager > Network Adapters > open the Wireless-AC 8265 > Driver tab > Update driver. 

 

Then just select 'Search Automatically' and it should install this latest version. Seems to be working so far! 

 

Went through a long registration process just to post this, FML. 

 

Lenovo, update! This issue only started after applying updates recommended by the Lenovo software. Cat Indifferent

Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen, loosing wifi gateway after SLEEP

Be sure to do exactly what The_D said. I figured I could just right-click the adapter and select "Update driver" there. But this put me back to the faulty one that I had an issue with.

Then I did Device Manager > Network Adapters > open the Wireless-AC 8265 > Driver tab > Update driver. This installed 20.70.11.3 from 2019-06-29.

Some Windows bug, go figure!
