2 out of 5 eggsTerrible drivers/not recommended

Pros: Here we see the Intel 7260AC wifi card, in it's natural habitat, which is a laptop. Depending on its mood, you might get (very) lucky and see it work fairly well. Or, you might see a mess of driver errors if it's feeling down. Speaking of which...

Cons: I got this card in a t440s a few months ago, and it is a piece of junk. Depending on the driver version, your problems range from occasional drops, code 43 stop errors in device manager when resuming from sleep (version 17.1 does this constantly), or simply speeds that rival that of 802.11g wifi cards. I have an older Intel draft N card in another laptop that consistently runs circles around this one. (If only I could put it in my newer laptop.) Yes, I have the card set to not be allowed to go to sleep in device manager (that solved some issues, but not all). And I have yet to make bluetooth connect with my phone (galaxy nexus) so much as a single time. I get through the pairing process and the codes, and it appears to be successful, but both show each other as offline. Pathetic. Intel, you should be ashamed of yourself for putting this out there.

Other Thoughts: I'm using the version 16.5.3.6 driver built into Windows 8.1 64-bit for now, and it seems to be working OK... fingers crossed. I transferred a large file between this laptop and my older one as a test (one on wifi/other on ethernet), and got ~65mbps on the 7260AC to my dual-band router, while I got 80-85mbps, when the other laptop was the one on wifi. Really Intel?

5 out of 5 eggsMust Have for Lenova Yoga 2 Pro

Pros: Easy to install, works flawlessly, fast!

Cons: None other than Lenovo should have included this in the product in the 1st place.

Other Thoughts: I had to exchange my 1st Yoga Pro 2 because the Bluetooth kept disappearing. the 2nd one was intermittent. I also have an AC router and wanted to connect to the 5Ghz band. It installed in minutes. If you choose to disconnect the battery, it might be a lot longer. It's hard to remove the battery cable and feels like you might break it. I don't see a need to remove the battery for connecting RAM, HDs or a wifi card for that matter. I have been installing things for years and years and have never done any damage by swapping these items with the battery connected. It was extremely easy to swap for the new card and I have not encountered any problems in 3 months. Very fast on 5Ghz and very stable.

1 out of 5 eggsdead after 2 months

Pros: installation was easy. replaced the unit that shipped with my lenovo yoga 2 pro as others did. original card had shoddy reception. this unit has more speed, reception and everything was great. features exactly as expected.

Cons: Bluetooth features completely stopped working after two months. warranty replacement is a hassle, newegg says talk to intel and intell says talk to new egg. may just be a bad day but new eggs returns functions on their site made me fill out the same info 3 times before submitting an email...

Other Thoughts: will update when resolution is at hand.

5 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade to Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

Pros: - 802.11AC speeds
- Integrated Bluetooth 4.0
- Easy install (Yoga 2 Pro)

Cons: Just the fact that Lenovo didn't offer an AC card ad default or as an option.

Other Thoughts: Works fine with my Linksys E3000 though that's an older N Widi router. I tested it with a D-Link DIR-510L travel router (AC750 router) and I did get improved throughput and signal strength. I look forward to the arrival of my new Netgear R7000 Nighthawk WiFi router.

This is a relatively easy upgrade for most modern laptops. My Lenovo Yoga two Pro was very easy. On the other hand My Asus G750JH was upgraded at purchase by a custom builder, as doing it myself would of required a lot of major disassembly.

Make sure you get the correct version for you device, this is the new M.2 (NGFF) form factor WiFi card. Check which card your device requires.

I did see a bump in mt internet throughput with the AC750 travel router but the real benefit will be with you Local Network speeds especially for those streaming from their computers.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent WLAN adapter

Pros: This NGFF format adapter plugged right into my laptop in place of the original WLAN adapter. I updated the 802.11n original to 802.11ac of this board and I really do see an improvement in WiFi throughput.

Cons: The only con is likely one all tiny WLAN boards will have: Getting the antenna leads connected is a challenge.

Other Thoughts: Adding this board is worth the effort. My upload and download rates over the 802.11n board this replace are significantly better.

5 out of 5 eggsFor Owners of Yoga 2 Pro

Pros: connects at 780 Mbps on a 5 Ghz wireless AC network from Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router. Has better range than its predecessor 7260 N single band adapter. also has Bluetooth 4.0 built into the adapter. and actually easier to install than you would think.

Cons: You have to open up your ultrabook / laptop which most likely voids your warranty unless you can be super slick about the install.

Other Thoughts: If you own a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, then this is the wireless adapter you need to update the device with. So many people have complaints about the Yoga 2 Pro dropping wireless connection and most people are narrowing down the culprit to the Intel 7260 wireless N single band adapter it comes with. Upgrading to the newer 7260 AC adapter has solved some peoples' problems and also give them newer technology. I just wish Newegg would have had this adapter sooner as I had to buy one from elsewhere and had to wait almost a month before I received it.
