    Which Intel 7260 card did you use?  There are at least 5 versions that I am aware of...

    7260HMW BN (wireless N; single band), 7260HMW NB (wireless N; dual band; no Bluetooth), 7260HMW AN (wireless N; dual band; Bluetooth), 7260HMW (wireless AC; dual band; Bluetooth), 7260HMW.R ("revised").  Prices range from $12 to $30.

     

    I've also read that most could not get the Bluetooth working...  I've also read that the "revised" version updated the Bluetooth functionalities.  Does your Bluetooth work?

     

    Finally, did you have to do anything special to install the correct driver?  Thanks.

    So I changed the settings like the original post suggested. Didnt change DL speed much at all..

     

    So I ordered the suggested wifi card and installed it just now, my download speed went from 3Mbps to just over 4Mbps, not a huge increase. My roommates mac tested at 29Mbps right next to my computer at the same time.

     

    I dont know what else to do here?

    I installed the INTEL|7260 wifi adapter and let Windows find the current driver automatically.

     

    Worked like a charm and out wi-fi speeds are now 20Mbs.  Couldn't ask for better, and it has been that way for about a year now.  

     

    This Intel card TOTALLY cured the problem for us.
