AC-7260 for desktop not connecting to 802.11AC signal

I recently installed the Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 for desktop into my PC. It will connect to the 5GHz signal from my router (Netgear R6300) however Windows says it is connected to 802.11N and achieves a maximum speed of around 390Mbps, and I noticed that it has no IPv6 connectivity, which I had before installing the card. I have a laptop that supports AC and connects to the AC signal from my router. I have updated the drivers to the latest driver for both the router and the adapter, and receive excellent signal strength. I am running Windows 7 64bit. I have also noticed through the Intel Proset software it detects that the 5ghz signal is AC and N bands. Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Please check if you have widest channel selected in the wireless adapter properties for 5GHz.

I looked at the settings for my router and adapter, on the adapter the 802.11n channel width is on auto, and on my router I put the settings I saw to maximum, but have not seen any change. The settings I have for my adapter are as followed:

802.11n channel width 2.4ghz- auto

802.11n channel width 5.2ghz- auto

Adhoc Channel 802.11b/g- 1

Adhoc QoS mode- WWM enabled

ARP offload for WoLAN- Enabled

Bluetooth AMP- Enabled

GTK Rekeying for WoLAN- Enabled

HT Mode- VHT mode

Mixed mode protection- CTS-to-Self enabled

NS offload for WoLAN- Enabled

Preferred Band- Prefer 5.2Ghz band

Roaming Aggressiveness- Medium

Sleep on WoWLAN disconnect- Disabled

Transmit Power- Highest

Wake on Magic Packet- Enabled

Wake on Pattern Match- Enabled

Wireless Mode- 6. 802.11a/b/g

Is there anything that looks wrong or needs to be changed? Thanks

And what speed do you get if the AP is set to 802.11n only?

Throughput depends of many factors like electrical noise and interference, AP configuration and drivers.

I am sorry for any inconvenience.
