We understand that you're having issues with your Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 and would like to replace it with a newer adapter model.
The safest way to find a suitable replacement will be to contact your computer manufacturer to learn which adapters have been pre-approved for your specific computer. If possible, it's always best to purchase the replacement directly from them to avoid any compatibility issues.
Since it's impossible for us to confirm hardware compatibility, plus we can't risk suggesting an adapter that has not been certified for your computer (regulatory issues), we cannot recommend a new wireless card for you. We do not provide support for custom wireless integrations.
While the Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 has not been released to consumers yet, you may want to ask your computer manufacturer about the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 or 8265 models, both of which are released in the same M.2 form factor as your current adapter.

- Regulatory Information Regarding Wireless Hardware Installation or Upgrade.
- Why Doesn't My Laptop Recognize My New Intel® Wireless Adapter?
We hope this information helps.
