    Hey guys,
    So the wifi reception of my laptop seems to drastically drop when using bluetooth headphones. I initially thought it was a problem with the wifi card (the inspiron comes with intel 3165) so I ordered and upgraded to the intel 8265. Unfortunately still the same issue.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Switch to a better channel like 6,11 for 2.4GHz or 154,157,161 for 5GHz bands.

    Seems like a hardware fault now. Wifi has started deteriorating even when bluetooth is off. Need to sit right next to to my wifi device and even then it shows only 3 bars of signals.
