wireless-ac 9260 can't swich wlan on

Jump to solution

I bought an intel wireless ac 9260 card with ngff slot and prepared to replace my acer S7 laptop's orignal 7260n card. When system reboot, with newest driver installed, the wireless statue displayed as "swich off", and can't be swich on. In the mean time, bluetooth works fine. the device manager shows the ac 9260 card work normally. Consider the OS problems, I reinstalled the windows 10 x64, turn out the same statues. I wonder if there's a solution?or the Compatibility problem?

There may well be a compatibility problem.

Replacing your wireless card in your laptop should only be done by the OEM.

And, doing so yourself can lead to problems:

And, while not using the same adapters as you, look at post # 1 here, where N.Scott.Pearson provides information as to why there are other problems:

You may want to contact the manufacturer of you laptop to determine wlan card compatibility and support.
