Speed Issues Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260



I am facing issue's with above device on my Dell Lattitude E5440 (Windows 7, 64bit).

Device is connected to my WiFi router, and according to the Network and Sharing center connected through 802.11n with a speed of only 54mbps.

However using the Intel PROset/Wifi Connection Utility program and reviewing connection details, the device is connected to the router on band 802.11g .

AS7260 driver version (18-6-2014) is installed.

Furthermore note that with other laptops significant higher speeds are achieved (130Mbps) on 2.4GHz band.

Could someone assist me in getting this issue resolved??

Thanks in advance!
