Are you connecting to a an actual 802.11N or newer 5G? If newer 5G, forget about it, the chipsets used are just not reliably compatible. My recommendation to clients is to settle on 2.4 if you want reliable wireless.

I'm connecting to an actual 802.11ax AP, but for IoT purposes I have dedicated 2.4GHz only SSID, a/n compatible (my AP uses mediatek chipset without 2.4GHz ax capabilities).
As for printer itself - Ive made it to use this IoT SSID - but it refuses to set 802.11n standart, keeps 802.11g standart and rates.
If you try turning off legacy rates and 802.11b/g - it simply won't connect to WiFi. In case you wanna connect to combo 2.4+5 SSID - printer stays on 2.4GHz with g rates, ignoring band steering and etc.
IIRC, previously M2070W was able connect to 5GHz and use 802.11n, maybe using earlier firmwares, so I guess it's wireless chip isn't complete flop?
In any case, my goal is to make it run 802.11n while staying in 2.4GHz range.
