I recently purchased and installed a WiFi card for my PC (PC-Link WiFi 6 AX3000 PCIe WiFi Card). Suddenly my laptop's adapter (Intel Wireless-AC 9462) stopped working. I can temporarily solve the issue by uninstalling the device & driver under device manager and restarting the laptop. But a few hours later the issue will reoccur.

Weirdly, this isn't a problem if my laptop is not near my PC. I travelled for a week and my WiFi was working just fine the whole time.

What's going on????

So the PC and laptop do work together, side by side, in a wireless environment without problems for some period of time.

Any power savers on the laptop?

Look in the laptop's Reliability History.

You may find some error codes, warnings, or even informational events that correspond with the times that wireless stops working. Right click any given entry for more detailed information.

Also look in the router's logs (if available and enabled). The router may be capturing some event that corresponds with the laptop's wireless stoppages.
