Apologies if this is the wrong thread

Hardware
I have an HP elitebook 850 G4
i7 7500u, 16gb ram
Intel Dual Band wireless-AC 8265 (Wireless nic)

Issue
whenever a wetransfer is done over wifi it freezes after a few seconds - it does download a few %

Troubleshooting
Wetransfers over ethernet have 0 issues
all other devices have no issues with wetransfers over the same wifi
i have reinstalled the wireless NIC

any advice?

Download and install the
Intel® Driver & Support Assistant

They've been pushing out update after update for their WiFi/Bluetooth cards for about 2 years now. I have an Intel 3165 Dual Band and can't count the number of updates to the ProSet Wireless Software as well as the device driver that have been downloaded and installed over that time period.

Intel is also not being particularly timely about sharing same with Microsoft or computer OEMs, so I've chosen to let the device manufacturer's monitoring software take care of this particular device.
