Changing the wireless card in your laptop can cause problems and should be done only with the OEM (MSI).
Check with MSI for compatibility with this card. Also, there may be MSI bios issues with this card.
They only "support" the killer 1435, which drops connection every couple minutes. Every purchaser has changed the wireless card, most go with the 8265 (I just installed 3 8265's in the same laptops at work.)
The 9260 + bluetooth both work flawless on everything. I had the card in for atleast 2 weeks before i went to use chromecast, at which point it did take me a while to realize why my laptop wouldnt cast anymore

Thanks for posting.
As explained by Al Hill, connection, performance and other kind of issues are expected when replacing the wireless adapter without the assistance of the computer OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
However, other users have reported similar issues on online forums (even though Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 is not related).
On this Google* product forums thread, an user confirmed the issue was solved after testing following:
- Make sure both Chrome Browser* and Chromecast* firmware are up to date.
- For Tab Cast, go to Chrome Browser* > Settings > Advanced > System > Disable Use hardware acceleration when available and restart the browser.
From our side, we recommend performing a clean driver installation. You can find detailed instructions about this process here:
- Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers
If the issue persists, please contact the Chromecast* Support Team.
