Hello. New PC purchase is having a lot of wifi connectivity issues. We use a 5Ghz Net Gear Orbi Mesh Network. PC is located upstairs while router is floor below, and so it runs off the satellite router.

PC has a MSI Z590 PRO WIFI in motherboard. However, it would keep dropping Wifi for a few seconds at a time randomly. My brother has the exact same PC I ordered but an older version and he has no issues with wifi, even when it was upstairs like mine. Additionally, my Razer laptop with built in wifi and phone have zero issues whenever PC wifi disconnects. We are confused why it hasn't worked consistently but I ordered the Asus PCE-AC88 wifi adapter just to be safe.

This too has disconnected regularly. But with the adapter, it will automatically be disabled and no wifi networks will be detected. I have to go in and manually enable it back to get it working again. This happened regularly, despite updating drivers from Asus website and on Windows updates as well as always making sure my MSI CPU wifi was disabled.

I'm at a loss why both wifi options are failing when no other device in the house has had an issue, even in the same location. Please help.
