Intel Wireless AC 9560 not working

Some readers reported that the Intel Wireless AC 9560 is not working, causing it not to support the integrated wireless 802.11ac solutions from Intel.

The main reason behind this issue is a hardware problem with the Intel Wireless AC 9560 adapter. However, outdated network drivers can also be the culprit, but we don’t exclude network congestion or faulty OS updates and corrupt system files.
