    Ubuntu 22.04 WiFi Only Connecting at 72Mb/s

    My laptop WiFi had no issue to connect at higher speeds in the past. Yesterday, I just checked while connecting to 802.11ac Access Point that laptop is not connecting higher than 72Mb/s. There is no problem with Access Point since my mobile is also connected to same AP with 433Mb/s. I suspect that in past when Ubuntu updated its kernel that resulted in breaking some WiFi features. Please suggest where I can look for to try fixing it.

    I don't think the iwlwifi driver likes power management being on
    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
    sudo iwconfig wlp5s0 power off
    See if that works better

    Earlier I had already tried that powersave option and it had not worked. This time I tried again and even restarted the laptop, speed is still 72Mb/s.

    Can you change the encryption on the 5GHz AP? It shows TKIP being used and that isn't recommended
    See https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread....&#post13614520 on how to set your country code as that may help with something in the results

    Changing country code did not help. Neither changing the encryption on AP to AES. Based on following dmesg
    Code:
     wlp5s0: capabilities/regulatory prevented using AP HT/VHT configuration, downgraded
    Ive also tried changing channels on AP as was mentioned here but still no luck.

    See if you can disable WPA on the router, leave WPA2 on and turn off IPv6 in Network Manager settings for the connection
