Have you tried using a USB adapter? That looks really bad. Heck I get better pings than you when I ping your ISP:
There might be some firewall or firewall rules or antivirus or even some OEM software that conflicts with your drivers. Perform a clean boot (use a search engine if you're not sure how to do this) and see if the WiFi still has problems.
I tried with clean boot, and disable antivirus software. It seems to be ok at times but just as bad at other times. And it's totally random, does not matter if I disable the services/startup programs or not.
I tried with another wifi adapter ASUS N13 and it work fine.
Please let us know if disabling uAPSD in the adapter properties help.
It does seem to help a bit but the line is still so bad it is unusable. Connection seems to drop badly at times for no reason.
You may want to report the issue to the Intel® wireless networking support team for our next release:

I purchased the AC7260 almost a year ago. Despite at least 6~8 firmware releases, can't hold a connection for more than 30 seconds (best case). The old Intel b and G cards were rock solid, not sure why they lost their mojo and still can't get a fix out in almost a year!!!
18.104.22.168 has mixed results for me. While on the 2.4 ghz band I can now use 40 mhz resulting in speeds faster than 150mbps, the adapter no longer functions correctly when resuming from system standby The standby issue used to be an issue with earlier drivers but was fixed in 22.214.171.124. 126.96.36.199 wouldn't let me use 40 mhz wireless on 2.4ghz. So, this driver took one step forward and two steps back for me as it is disruptive for me to reboot my pc every time I want to use wifi. The latency issue is still there but seems to happen less often with 188.8.131.52.
Im running Win 7 x64 with a functional Asus AC-68U. Other laptops do not have any problems with this router on any band.
We still need much work on stable drivers, Intel. Disappointing, yet again.
I have officially removed the 7260 and replaced it with the Intel wifi link 1000 card that used to be in my laptop. Half of the time, I would have to power on and off just to get connectivity. It is so disruptive to my workflow that its simply not worth using this card. I will wait until the a new driver release to test again. Please help, Intel.
I will make a forecast right now.... that all the major problems that people are consistently having with the Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-7260 card will not be solved satisfactorily by the end of the year..!
What will happen is there will be countless driver releases and workarounds from Intel but the outcome will be the same...
This card is not fit for purpose.... end of..!
Oooops... I may now be proved wrong in my forecast after testing the latest update 184.108.40.206... Sorry everyone
Has anyone tried the new driver 17. 0. 3 ??
I have tried it. I am having an issue with it connecting at my college campus and at a public library connecting at 300Mbps. Cantona has tried it and he seems to like it.
the speed of 300MB/sec to 2,4 Ghz ???
no on 5Ghz. My school has 802.11N only on the 5Ghz range because of how limited the channels are on the 2.4Ghz. If I use 220.127.116.11 I can get the 300Mpbs but when I upgrade to 18.104.22.168 all I get is 54Mbps. Intel keeps wanting to blame it on the security settings when nothing has change just the drivers. My school uses WPA2-Enterprise and you have to have and the public library that I went to had an open (unsecure) network and they had dual band because they have a 2.4G and a 5G network.
I installed the new driver 17.0.3 with the following results
5Ghz network: card works well, excellent speed, good stability
2.4 Ghz Network : card works evil low-speed data transfer, the card Centrino Advance N 6235 works at three times the speed of the AC 7260.
Intel has put into the sale a product that does not meet the specifications stated!
When Intel solves the problem!
My complete disappointment
I obtained better performance with driver 16-5-3-6 but was highly unstable
