intel 7260 N not stable at on line games


Hello Community,

Greetings from Poland

I bought intel 7260 N for my laptop Asus G750 JX, due orginally wi fi card had only 150mb/s

Intel have 300mb/s but when I play on line games i.e. Heroes of The Storm in every 8-10 minutes there is freezy for 5sec.

When I connect my laptop via wire to my ISP router - Arris 2652 - there is no issue.

I tried in WIndows 7, 8,1, 10 - all 64 bit - issue have been every time.

I tried various set up - 2,4 GHZ, 5 GHZ - still issue in games.

Im also done tests from Intel PRO SET/WIERLESS - all green.

I have newest drivers from Intel Driver Update Utility 2.7

Can you help me ?

We understand you replaced the wireless adapter in your PC with an Intel® Wireless-N 7260, and you noticed some connectivity issues after that. We would like to inform that custom integrations of Intel® Wireless Adapters are not supported, you should always contact the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer Support before upgrading the wireless adapter, and have it replaced with them whenever possible. Driver and software from the old adapter may cause problems with the new one.


Using a non-supported adapter may lead to errors, connectivity issues, or even hardware malfunction. Please check the following documents for more information:

This sounds to me like a case of "background scanning". Your connection is being put on hold every time your WLAN card goes looking for a list of networks. If you are not roaming around, and you are always connecting to the same access point, you can probably disable background scanning and this problem will go away. Chances are that this happens all the time and you are only aware of it when you are gaming.
