    Default Intel Wifi is very, very weak! - Asrock Fatal1ty X99 professional gaming i7

    Just built a new system using this the Asrock Fatal1ty X99 professional gaming i7. Everything is outstanding, apart from the Intel wifi!
    Doesn't pick up any of my home networks (or surroundings at all). Does pick up my phone using a mobile hotspot, but only if it's right next to it.
    The signal strength is extremely low/weak - almost non existant.

    I'm using the latest bios and all drivers are up to date (from ASRock website). Would anyone have any other ideas I could try (not listed below)?
    Really don't want to have to return the board or find another one from a different manufacturer. I love everything else. Build specs are below.

    What I've checked/done already:
    1. Antennas are plugged in properly.
    2. I've tried resetting all network connections.
    3. Reinstalled all drivers - multiple times.
    4. Reset Windows 10 from scratch.
    5. Turned off fast boot in bios.
    6. Made sure nothing is interfering with signal around case and antennas.
    7. Used Intel drivers instead (direct from their website rather than Asrock).
    8. Reset to optimised bios defaults.
    9. Pulled out other expansion cards.
    10. Checked network sharing options.
    11. Turned firewall on/off.
    12. Jumped up and down on the spot.

    I just build a new computer with an ASROCK X370 TAICHI (AMD processor).
    All is working fine but the embedded Intel Wifi (a m2 board) is very weak.
    I get 6 Mbps in download when my usb dongle sustain 70 Mbps!

    After checking the system my conclusion is that the radio board is very weak (low sensitivity/low emitted power).
    Asrock propose a RMA for the motherboard but I worry that it is a general issue with every board.

    Bowman do you have any update about your board?
