Want to know what is the differences of the Bluetooth driver for AC7265 and AC7260?

According to the download page, there is different driver for those cards. WP version for AC7260, and StP version for AC7265.

Just wonder, can I use WP version for both AC7260 and AC7265?

Hello John@2000

It is very important that you know that the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 belongs to one family and the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 belongs to another. Even though the driver version is the same it won't work. It highly recommended that you always install the indicated driver to its respective adapters. We hope this information helped you.

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply.

May need your suggestion here. We have product currently ship with AC7260, and are going to phase in AC7265 instead.

Since it is an on going product, it is preferred that we can keep same OS.

We found that WiFi driver for those two cards are same, but Bluetooth driver. Any workarounds for this?

It is hard for us to maintain two OS for same model of product but with different WiFi card.

Regards,

Yong
