Hello,

I´m looking for the latest driver for the Intel dual band wireless-n 7260 for Windows 10 64bit. The official support pages are not available (404). It would be very nice if anyone could tell me a download link. (f.e. url )

Thanks and best regards,

Christian

To all users experiencing Wifi Connectivity issues with AC 7260, If you happen to be running Sophos Connect on an HP laptop, Sophos has a fix (disabling the HP Wifi/LAN Switching Service) that was my issue (in addition to an old driver).

SOPHOS CONNECT HP COMPUTER dropping Wifi with Intel Wifi AC 7260: 

Run > Enter text services.msc > Press Enter

Locate HP/LAN/WLAN/WWAN Switching UWP Service > Right Click - Properties

General Tab - Start-up Type: > Change drop down to "Disabled"

 

Also a shout out to Scott for assisting myself and so many others with the latest drivers! Thank you Scott.

I have the same issue for my 7260.  I'm on Window 10 64 bit.  I can't access my new router that is a wifi 6.  

I have a 2015 Dell Precision M6800.  I've been able to replace modules and would be willing to replace the adapter if necessary.  Otherwise, an update for the 7260 would be great!!

 

Thank-you in advance!!!

Hi! Can I also ask for the latest AC 7260 wifi card driver and AC 7260 bluetooth driver?

I am having a big problem with sound being lost on one of the headphones (QCY T13) when using the Logitech K380 keyboard at the same time. My laptop is Asus K53SV, previously this card worked in Asus N751 (on the card I have a mark with the ending, not HU).

I've tried almost everything but the problem still exists..

Sorry for posting multiple times. I didn't see my messages sent before.

I think I had some connection problem while sending the message.

I just wanted to report back that my WLAN card replacement was a success and the drivers worked great!

 

It took a bit of work to deal with my long standing Generic Bluetooth Driver issue, but after adjusting some settings, using a driver wizard and a reboot, my new WLAN card was working perfectly fine for both WiFi and Bluetooth.

 

My old Asus K43SV can finally properly connect to my newer WiFi mesh network, and connect to Bluetooth devices again without a dongle. (Also, I managed to solve a dead USB port problem I had for years with a driver update while I was at it. :))

 

Thanks again, n_scott_pearson. You're a life saver.

 

P.S. I'd like to give back to the community and post a download share link for the drivers. Is there any policy preventing me from posting a MEGA share link or something?

There are already all sorts of places where you can find these drivers so I don't think that another share is really necessary. Of course, the question is whether you can actually *trust* any particular one of these offerings. Unless it is through a former incarnation of the Intel website (being accessed via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine), my answer is no, don't trust them - and especially do not trust any of the driver provider sites (most of these are hotbeds for malware distribution).

I have provided these drivers under the premise that, being both a former employee of Intel and a recognized Super User on the site, folks will trust me. As you say, it is also my way of giving back, even if it shouldn't be necessary (Intel actions continue to embarrass me regularly). I have doled out the link to my share on a user-by-user basis, not because I am trying to limit its propagation but so that I can keep track of how many people are actually downloading it (as ammunition for my pleas to Intel). I am sure that there are people who have passed the link along to others (it's so sure to happen that I don't even ask people not to - but I wish they wouldn't since I can't track it then). Since Jan. 6th, I have provided the link to 83 (7260/3160) people (that I know of). That's an average of 1.9 people every day asking for access. 

If you are looking for a way of giving back, why not make a donation to the Internet Archive? Al Hill (who's a wizard at finding stuff in these site archives) and I have used it literally hundreds of times to ferret out something that a user cannot find any longer.

Gotta run; I see that request #84 just arrived in my inbox...    ;^)

Thanks for the reply!

 

As someone who already uses the Internet Archive a lot, I had already been considering donating a bit more to support them and their efforts.

 

I think I'll chip in a bit more, then.
