The title says enough I think, but still I will explain a bit more. So about a year ago I bought my ASUS ROG G551jm equipped with this network adapter Intel Dual Band N 7260 and because it is a gaming laptop I play games on it, some of which are online games and I use Wi Fi because it is a laptop after all. Anyway I had lag spikes, connection drops and every other issue possible that every single customer, who is using this adapter is experiencing. At first I was okay I will try and fix it - uninstalled and installed back driver, changed the router , the operating system and nothing worked , then I thought I would wait for a fix - didnt happen, then I decided to google a solution - nothing helped , and at last I decided to contact support - no help there either , the guy did his best to help me but the adapter is just crappy and Intel wouldn't admit it. So I decided to renew this long forgotten topic and ask for a solution or at least an apology from intel for this faulty ( mildly said , but I dont want to use offensive language ) network adapter.

So from Asus told me they couldnt help me because they havent tried the laptop with any other network adapters. So I decided to ask you if you could recommend me a product that is the same size as the Intel Dual Band Wireless N 7260?
Please remember that only the PC manufacturer can recommend a suitable replacement for the wireless adapter in your PC. As was mentioned in the advisory for Hardware upgrades, a replacement adapter may not work even if the card has the same form factor: PCIe Half Mini Card or M.2 (NGFF).
