Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 N-band Issue

Overview

I recently obtained a laptop that contains a Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 wireless card and the network speeds are incredible slow. This is actually my second laptop, as the first one I returned due to experiencing similar issues.

 

Network Details

  • 2.4GHZ
  • WPA2-Personal
  • N band with a throughput of 600mb/s
  • Netgear R7000 router/access point

     

 

The Problem

 

  • Pings to the router would take anywhere from 4ms-3000ms, and even time out
  • Download speeds would max out around 50kb/s

 

What I've Tried

  • Upgraded and downgraded the drivers (Current driver is 17.0.3.2)
  • Used another router/access point. (The old router was a linksys dir-655)

The Temporary Fix

  • Switching the network to have a throughput of 289mb/s fixes the issue, but this is not an ideal solution.

I believe it may be a driver issue, but am not sure. Any advice/help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Connect your laptop at 5 GHz and your wifi issues should be fixed plus you get 866 Mbps. 2.4 GHz with 7260 isn't that good compared to other Intel cards when interference is present.
