    Intel AC 7260

    charlyle2007

      Hello, can someone help me? I currently have windows 8.1. I just recently replaced my wifi card from intel n-2230 to intel ac 7260. My version for the new wireless card is 16.6.0.8, and I have tried updating it to 16.7.0.0, but the installation just disappears. So now I am stuck with this driver. Is there a possible way to get the wireless mode "802.11ac"? I only have 802.11a,802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11a/g, 802.11b/g, and 802.11a/b/c. Please help me find a way to get 802.11ac. Thank you

      Here is my netsh:
