Depending on the Wi-Fi driver version used, the Intel® Wireless Adapters supporting 802.11ac might not show Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) networks in its scan list and as a result might not be able to connect to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) capable wireless routers and access points, even at 802.11ac speeds.

Intel recommends using the latest driver version (Download the latest Wi-Fi driver) for your Intel® Wireless Adapter since issues get resolved and new functionality gets added to newer driver versions.
