Answer by dman_1092
Is the SSID broadcasting for your router? If it’s not than it wont be able to detect. Log into you router and check the advanced section on the left and click wireless settings. See if the disable SSID option is checked.

If the laptop is searching for connections than the card is working…..

Wooww, nice product! I want to share this product!

    Older HP Dv7 – Wifi works great – Bluetooth No Go BUT…, October 11, 2013

    This review is from: Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2×2 AC+Bluetooth HMC (Electronics)
    The card works great and my speeds over AC are a nice improvement. I am still bottle-necked as I’m using an older HP-DV7 1000 series laptop with this card.

    For those that may not know; if you receive an error at start-up after install, this means your laptops manufacture has blocked the card from working (Only approved cards). You will need to re-flash your laptops bios/firmware with a modified version that remove this ‘blocking’ function. (white listed)

    You can find a few sites out there that specialize in listing modified bios/firmwares based on your laptops model and bios/firmware version removing the ‘white listing’ completely. Take your time with this if you’re new.


    Intel now offers the drivers for this card. If you want to use the Bluetooth function be sure to get the Bluetooth Intel software package FIRST before installing the Intel Wireless Drivers.

    The Bluetooth works only over G wireless so be prepared for setup issues and some playing. Read Intel instructions on this. This may not just be a plug and play feature for your situation.

    Great product from Intel, September 19, 2013

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2×2 AC+Bluetooth HMC (Electronics)
    I purchased this card in combination with the new ASUS RT-AC66U where I installed DD-WRT. I installed this card on my Lenovo V570 after removing the BIOS blacklist. The Lenovo V570 has two antennas so that worked well with this card. I downloaded the drivers from Intel and installed them on a Windows 7 x64. It works very well, so far I have not experienced any disconnects as other users have, maybe because I used the latest Intel driver. I have not tested bluetooth.

    I have configured my router for 80Mhz of bandwidth at 5Ghz 802.11ac and 40Mhz for 2.4Ghz. I have also checked the settings for the Intel AC 7260 and changed the following:

    – 802.11n Channel Width for 2.4Ghz: Auto
    – 802.11n Channel Width for 5.2Ghz: Auto
    – Preferred Band: 3. Prefer 5.2Ghz band

    I also checked multiple channels for the 5Ghz interface. Some channels were pretty bad with connection speeds of 70mbit/sec.

    I have my router upstairs and use the laptop downstairs. The connection speed at 5GHz shows in DD-WRT and Windows at 585 mbit/sec. My old 802.11n card was connecting at 144 mbit/sec. After testing some file transfers, the effective bandwidth was around 15MB/sec, which is effectively around 120mbit/sec, 10 times the 1MB/sec that I was getting with the 802.11n. In theory I should be seeing transfers of 60-70 MB/sec but I am happy with my 10x improvement. Now if you are testing this card by transferring some files, your storage needs to be able to handle these transfer speeds. I have a 10TB storage array connected to my server via 4Gigabit Fibrechannel that can do more than 300MB/sec (limited by the 1gbit/sec network connection of the router to 120MB/sec) and I use an Intel last generation flash SLC drive on my laptop that will easily do 100MB/sec, so my backend storage can support true 1 gigabit/sec.

    One last thing, be aware that the seller SPICY BOMB is selling fake cards. These cards are Atheros AR9462/AR5BWB222 with a photocopied sticker from an Intel card. These are not even AC wireless cards. If you purchased this card from SPICY BOMB, please look at the sticker and see if you have WFM: 0C8BFD2C745A and BDM: 0C8BFD2C745E. If you do, you have the fake card. You can also identify the fake because the antenna connectors are marked CH0 and CH1 instead of 1 and 2 like the Intel.

    The fastest wireless adapter in the house!, August 10, 2013
    R. Holman “the_holmboy” (SoJo, Utah, USA) –

    This review is from: Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2×2 AC+Bluetooth HMC (Electronics)
    As fate would have it, the AC 7260 and a D-Link DWA-182 (USB Wireless AC adapter) arrived on the same day, along with a D-Link DIR-868L AC Router. I have been patiently waiting for a Wireless AC adapter upgrade for my Dell Netbook (replacing an Intel 5300) and this was it, especially with the bonus of Bluetooth. As I typically do with all of my network connections, I test the actual throughput speeds using the excellent third-party utility LAN Speed Test (v3.4) with LAN Speed Server running on my main server across a robust Gigabit-802.11ac network. With the new components and some of my existing setup, I did some fairly extensive comparisons in twos: 2 locations (the two ends of my house where I typically use wireless about 20-30 feet from the optimal router), 2 access points (both are upper-end 802.11ac routers – the D-Link DIR-868L and a Netgear R6200, hereafter called WAPs) and the 2 adapters. Some interesting things came out of this testing method… The basement router serves one half of the house better and the upstairs router (acting as an access point) serves the other half better, but it is not split by level (horizontally) like I thought it would be, but split vertically and that surprised me a bit. Not so surprising was that this adapter performed far better on the 5GHz frequency than the 2.4GHz frequency with either router used (I turned one off and left one on then switched them during the testing process). I first tested the AC 7260 at 4 feet from each WAP and on each frequency to get a baseline or “high performance” measurement. On 5GHz, it averaged 130Mbps Write/Upload & 300Mbps Read/Download on both WAPs, hereafter referred to as just the numbers (e.g. 130/300). On the 2.4GHz band, best transfer speeds averaged 70/90 from the remote locations, meeting my expectation that it would be slower. On the 5Ghz frequency, again in the ideal location for each WAP, I was averaging 100/200 actual throughput speeds with one and close to baseline with the other at 125/290. Note: this was when it displayed between 300-480Mbps as the connection speed in Windows (i.e. full strength) and this disparity between rated and actual speeds has been typical, in my experience. Comparing it to the DWA-182, it averaged 50-90% faster speeds consistently over the days of testing. I recognize that they are not fully/directly comparable with one being portable (USB) and this one being semi-permanent with the advantage of a better antenna array, so that must be considered. My rating is based mostly on the expected performance of the adapter (having upgraded through, now 3, excellent Intel adapters) with the secondary consideration of value.

    Adding to the value is the added Bluetooth option, allowing me to open a much needed USB port. My findings were similar to what other reviewers found: First, that the Bluetooth drivers that auto-installed in Windows 7 work best. Second, when audio was connected (in this case, some LG HBS700 headphones), that there was a lag of a few seconds when sound was initiated. Not so much of a problem with something like music, but kind of a pain with system sounds. Sometimes, I would not even hear the sound because the lag was longer than the actual sound. But because I don’t use Bluetooth much, I will not diminish the rating because of this issue.
