Dual Band Intel-7260 Compatibility

Hello,

I would like to know the compatibility of the card "Dual Band Intel 7260 Half Mini PCI-E".
On a mini-PC Noname using i3 processor, there is a Broadcom BCM94313HGB card that I replaced (it does the BT and WiFi 2.4GHz) by the 7260, but it is not recognised !

Is it normal or you have to load a driver?

If yes which ?

Thanks.

Vincent.

You have to load drivers. The bad news is that Intel has discontinued this adapter and is no longer hosting the drivers on their servers. The good news is that I squirreled away the final drivers in my archive - but they are too large for me to post them here. I will shortly be sending you a Private Message (PM) with a link for downloading the Bluetooth and Wireless drivers.

If you are new to the site's PM service, you access it by clicking on your avatar picture in the top right corner of the page (within the Communities blue banner) and selecting Messages from the resulting menu.

Hi Scott, I try the driver you provide me.

Unfortunately no one work, No Wifi detection & No BT !

As you can see on snaps in attachment, first detect automatically Broadcom device on second No Intel device detected !

So, too bad, I think I need a good manufacturer for my Mini-PC to use 5Ghz Wifi !

Thanks again.

Regards.

Vincent.

This can occur when a platform's BIOS implements Inclusion/Exclusion lists that will only support upgrades made through the platform provider. 

It can also occur if the module is bad. Where/how did you get it?

Hi Scott, I get (and returned it now) to Amazon. I'll try another type when I found a compatible model with my Mini-PC !
