Intel Dual Band 7260 lag spikes + disconnections + Sleep Of Death


Dear Intel Corporation.

I have the Asus G750JW with your buggy as hell Wifi card.

Dual Band Wireless-N 7260,

Driver version: from 12/8/2014

Windows 8.1 64bit

I can't play any online games as every minute or so I get a huge lag spike - at first I thought it was because of router problems or game poor design but after testing with multiple games and different routers I finally come to the conclusion is that ts your piece of garbage.

Sometimes the wifi will go to limited service and after the laptop goes to sleep, the card will never connect to a wifi router again.

And beyond all, when I download the newest drivers, it just do nothing (instead maybe saying that I have the most recent ones?) .

Any ideas what to fix this issue?
