Ac 7260 disconnects every other second. No issues with my Roku, Phones, router etc- only my laptop with AC 7260 card. Have read every blog and tried every setting, latest drivers etc. Only thought is that it must be a bad card or a setting mismatch between card and router. Help....

- Check with the http://www.intel.com/support/oems.htm Computer Manufacturer Support and obtain the most recent drivers for your wireless adapter, as second option, you can use the ones available from: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/75439/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-7260 Downloads for Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260.
