The Bluetooth* cable provided with the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC for Desktop has the USB data (D+/D-) wires swapped on the USB side of the cable. As a result, Bluetooth will not function correctly if installed as shown in the accompanying Intel® Wireless For Desktop Integration Guide (Figure 1).


Solution:When installing the Bluetooth cable on the motherboard USB header, rotate the USB connector side of the cable by 180 degrees (Figure 2). Bluetooth will now be functional.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Functionality

Pros: - Bluetooth 4.0
- Dual Band
- Good Range

Cons: - Uses a USB header for Bluetooth
- Antennae is awkward and ugly

Other Thoughts: I got this because I wanted Bluetooth and Intel Wireless Display on my desktop. The wireless bit works fine, it has good range, good speed, and has been very reliable. However, I don't like the antennae; I currently have it hidden behind my case. The Bluetooth works great, I can connect my phone and somehow manage to transfer files across Bluetooth not only easier, but also faster than if I plugged my phone in. The one thing I don't like about the Bluetooth is that it requires a USB header. I had to get a splitter since all of the USB headers on my motherboard were populated.

Overall, it is a solid card with great functionality and would be a good addition to almost all desktops.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat just iffy

Pros: Very easy to install hardware and software. Will keep wifi signals strong and can push more through the router but carrier network is capped

Cons: Has issues staying connected to the 5ghz band.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter Intel Update, pretty darn good adapter

Pros: Very reliable connection
Increased my wifi bars from 2 to 4 bars
Very small, so airflow in the case is increased
Nothing fancy, just a solid piece of hardware you don't have to worry about much.

Cons: Out of the box drivers, without the update from intel, it is very slow and erratic.
Old fashion connectors so how much you tighten it (or night tighten) effects connection (some might consider this a good old fashiony good thing)
Bluetooth drivers and configuration is separate from wifi and seems very finicky and unreliable. (for me it was just an add-on, nothing I really need so I'm not upset)

Other Thoughts: I went from a TP-Link PCI to this Intel when I upgraded to Z97 and although my top speeds with TP-Link were slightly higher, the reliability of the Intel is clear, no hiccups or drops.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Wireless AC, Bluetooth 4.0
Small PCB, comes with low profile bracket.
Comes with everything you need. works on windows 8.1 sorta, (read cons)

Cons: the only problem with this is, that the Bluetooth after a while stops working and you have to re install the driver again, it also sometimes happens when you put the computer to sleep. this needs better windows 8.1 Bluetooth driver support, come on Intel!

Other Thoughts: other than whats stated above, the wireless AC works great no problems at all, only with the Bluetooth. I haven't tried this on windows 7, that might be a different story.

2 out of 5 eggsHigh hopes, less than stellar results.

Pros: The installation was fairly simple. There was plenty of notice about the Bluetooth pin issue which was simple to resolve. The build quality is excellent. The antenna is built well.

Cons: Stressing the card for an extended period of time resulted in a drop of connectivity to the network it was associated with. This drop in connectivity does not seem to be prompted by specific tasks. I can reproduce it with large software downloads or heavy video streaming. The behavior is displayed simply as a complete stop in traffic. You can still ping the loopback address, however any other network resources are unreachable.

There are no errors generated in Windows, or errors in the ProSet utility. The solution to the issue is as simple as disabling the adapter and immediately re-enabling it.

This behavior is incredibly inconvenient as no other network adapters attached to my network experience issues similar.

I have tried multiple versions of the ProSet utility and driver versions to no avail. There also seems to be no way in software to force G or N or AC. This seems a bit silly.

Current version of the utility/driver is

Other Thoughts: Lite network traffic does not seem to affect the card, it does not produce the lack in connectivity. However simply watching a 1080P stream from YouTube can cause the issues. This is very inconvenient and frankly unexpected as all the other Intel products from network cards to SSDs I have purchased in the past have functioned flawlessly.

Win 7 Pro x64

Connected to a DLINK DIR-655 in either G or N.
As of this writing the connection speed is "Excellent" at 117Mbps and the AP Signal Str is -61dBm.

3 out of 5 eggsIts ok.

Pros: Internet speeds are great.

Cons: Bluetooth function does not work. The USB header connection reversal tech support suggestion from Intel DOES NOT WORK. so no bluetooth. Intel should not have released this product with a flaw but they did anyway.

Other Thoughts: you know this would get 5 stars but the Bluetooth issue with this card is not fixable. Intel has done nothing to help either

5 out of 5 eggsIntel Wireless AC 7260 adapter

Pros: Extremely easy to install and setup, Updated all drivers via Intel's website running this Adapter on 5.2Ghz mode very fast connection speeds, using my PCIe x16 slot to run this adapter since I have a mini itx mobo!

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Getting ready to try out the Bluetooth which is connected via usb pins on my Motherboard. I installed the software after I mounted the wireless adapter in the case and everything else was simple.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Linux so far

Pros: Wireless worked with Kubuntu 14.04 linux right out of the box. Initially it got less than 7 mbit/sec with a Cisco E2000 wireless N router, running at .11G. This was lower than I got with my existing EdiMAX wireless G PCI adapter. I then used Apt-get to install the package 'linux-firmware-nonfree.' I rebooted both the router and computer, and got 18mbit/sec. I spent some time switching between the two adapters The signal strength is about the same as the EdiMax, about 60% but that's to be expected. Both have long cable antennas. I use a Cisco -N range extender in the downstairs hallway, which should connect using N. But I'm happy to get even this level of performance, almost, 3 times what I used to get. It seems stable so far.

The blue tooth was immediately recognized, and pairing to a MS 'Comfort Mouse' worked. But It seems to have a problem finding the mouse after re-booting. I may have to actually read the instructions...

Cons: Doesn't connect at N speeds, but that may be because it's at the limit of its range.

Other Thoughts: I wanted and got the extra antenna length and Linux compatibility. We'll see what happens.

3 out of 5 eggsWIFI Works Great,bluetooth....

Pros: WIFI Works great,very good signal with included antenna.Approx 50ft from router on a single level home with full bars.

Cons: Bluetooth software is outdated and doesn't like to function...but will pair with your Bluetooth product.Updating a newer driver from Intel's website renders Bluetooth functionality.
As others have said the antenna wire is a bit short but gets good signal.
USB that connects to your motherboard is wired incorrect per installation guide.
You would think a Intel product would work correctly with an all Intel build....a bit disappointed - 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I'm using Win 7 64 bit with a Intel B85FL MB & I3-4330 CPU
I tried using a logitech keyboard model # K810 & a logitech mouse model M555B..both Bluetooth and neither would fully function with this adaptor.
