Question Intel dual band AC2100 can't find networks

Apr 1, 2020
Basically my card can't find any Wi-Fi connections as if none are in range.

Antenna is unfolded and out. I have updated drivers, uninstalled, reinstalled them, unseated and reseated the card, and checked for loose antenna connectors but I can't seem to figure it out.

The thing worked fine for about a week, and now my PC is connecting through a much slower connection and I don't even know what that is. It says AC 9260 BUT I don't recall ever having it.

Below is a link to the exact hardware

EDIT TO ADD: I don't like using the current network adapter (9260) because it randomly drops the connection. I'd like to add in that I checked the PCIe slots they're both allegedly installed into and what it reads on my monitor is VERY different than what they're labelled as, leaving me pretty fricken confused about that too.

EDIT 2: I'm just dumb I guess??????? The name of the device under properties is vastly different than what the name of the hardware on the box for the hardware is and it's working fine. I discovered this by switching the PCIe port it was installed in and voila: I'm a dingus!
