    AC-7260 crashing on 802.11AC network


      So I am at a loss right now and looking for any help. I replaced the mini pci-e wifi/bluetooth card in my laptop with an Intel 7260AC about 6 months ago because i was having bluetooth issues with my old card on Windows 10. Since then i countinued to use my great Asus RT-N66U without issue (of course at 802.11N speeds). Yesterday the power button on the Asus RT-N66U gave out, so i decided it was time to upgrade to 802.11AC and went out and bought the top rated 1200AC router (T-LINK Archer C5). Got it all set up only to find that whenever I stressed the connection (downloading large files) the Intel 7260AC would disable itself and would not reenable without a system reboot. Looking in the system logs the Warning that jumps out at me is:




      The network interface "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260" has begun resetting.  There will be a momentary disruption in network connectivity while the hardware resets.

      Reason: The network driver requested that it be reset.

      This network interface has reset 2 time(s) since it was last initialized.



      So today i decided to swap out the T-LINK Archer C5 for an Asus RT-AC56U since i have loved the brand and of course the problem continued. I just went into the settings and disabled 802.11AC and i am running without issue in 802.11N now. Does anyone have some angle of attack for me on this one?
