I am contacting you because I have a pb of WIFI that makes me crazy with my new ACER DV7 laptop bought 3 days ago here in Paris
My internet connection goes in" limited connection" after fifteen minutes caused by " unable to find the default gateway".
After reseting my local wifi router , its works some minutes then its goes still down and so on...I tried to solve it with no result.
I saw your forum and found that there are maybe a pb with the driver of your Dual WifI bluetooth 7260 N chipset.
Could you give me the link with the fix to download ?
I am not the right person to solve your problem but you will maybe find something useful here:

Thanks for joining the Networking community.
I understand you are getting limited connection via wireless.
Please try the following to try to fixing the issue.
Update to the latest WIFI drivers
Check for a router firmware update
Also, make sure you test the connection using different router
Disable uAPSD under Adapter properties > Advanced, which seemed to fix my inability to join certain wireless networks.
Test different settings available here:
Got the info from this forum:
The problem is the newer Intel drivers, as many have pointed out.
Now to those remaining, take the steps that intel techs pointed out months ago, which involves:
* removing all intel network software from your 'add/remove applications"
* rolling back your driver version. This is done by going uninstall driver in device manager and choosing 'also remove software' tick box.
* Rescan again so it shows again, then repeat, and repeat, and repeat, till you get sick of repeating!
* Use CCleaner and clean your registry of any shit leftover, use windows disk cleanup etc. (good practise)
* Rescan till nothing shows, restart, repeat.. (now they didn't tell you about this repeating! hehe)
* Most of those who are onto it, won't have to repeat so much, but if you have been stuffing around trying to fix this, then there is a lot of rubbish to clean.
* It will reinstall it, check the version, is it the MS version? We are looking for version: 126.96.36.199 or simular 17x version.
Now you check your wifi, and it should be mint.
Now to stop Windows Update reinstalling the shitest driver from intel again, you can google this:
To anyone still having disconnect issues with the ac-7260 module, please try falling back on the driver version. Doing so has worked for many, including myself.
You can get drivers from Microsoft (Update catalog) here: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=ac-7260 Try drivers prior to 18.33.x.x.
If it works for you, please leave a comment here so others will know.
