Thanks for sharing this information. From our side the latest PROSet version is 17.0.2 and it is available at the download page
This version maybe available for OEM only but I regret to say we have no information about this. I recommend you checking the download page www.downloadcenter.Intel.com or the http://newsroom.intel.com/ for future releases.
Just testing out the latest Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software Version 22.214.171.124 with the Intel -AC 7260 card...
I'm delighted so far as regards to download speeds, my latest tests show a vast improvement in both 2.4ghz & 5ghz bands with 54mbps across the board....
Hopefully if these latest drivers prove to be more stable than the previous editions in all the other areas then were certainly on the right track.... fingers crossed... time will tell..
but in the mean time, well done Intel
I just downloaded 17.0.3 and installed it and I am not impressed. At my College campus you can only get 802.11 N speed if you have a dual band card. if you only have a single band card you can only get 802.11 G speed. well I have the Intel AC 7260 card installed in my laptop and I check the status of my connection to my schools network and it says 54Mbps. When was using 17.0.2 it was reading 300Mpbs. Which is true 802.11N speed. I have attached a screen shot of the new showing that I have 17.0.3 installed. Please how can we fix this issue. I want my 300 Mbps back..
I just tried that and it still did not change it. It is still connecting to the APs at 54Mbps. Any other suggestion.
I tried this driver after seeing good results here. Internet prices here at SoCal is ridiculous so I only get 15/1 plan from TWC which I don't have problems achieving that speed consistently with the previous drivers. However, with this driver plus u-aspd disabled, I get incredibly low jitter scores from pingtest.net from closest server to far servers like UK! This driver is a keeper for me and a worth successor to my previous 126.96.36.199 drivers.
Running 188.8.131.52 as well, moved on from 184.108.40.206 - Also so far so good, so much better than the previous 17.* drivers. Definitely increase in performance and stability.
Stable connection on AC - 866.7Mbps, no dropouts and definitely no dropouts on load. Hopefully drivers will only get better from here on out.
I have matched your setting and still having the same issue. It will only connect tot he access point at 54Mbps.
I would recommend you changing the security settings either on the Router or windows using the PROSet or the Windows options by changing the TKIP encryption to AES. This will improve the speed of the connection.
Here you have a very informative link:
I would first like to say that the public Library did not have any security. It is a wide open public access. I also would like to inform you that my college has WPA2-Enterpise Which i believe is better then WPA2 (AES). This has to do with something about the new update because Everyother driver version i can get 300Mbps but now i am only getting 54Mbps.

I know it must be 'doing your head in' with having your connection speed of only 54Mbps instead of 300Mbps...
Here's the steps I took installing the 220.127.116.11 drivers...
1. I first disabled the old Intel -AC 7260 card wifi driver and Bluetooth drivers in device manager and made sure they were also disconnected in network connection section under change adapter settings.
2. I then uninstalled .the Intel PROSet/Wireless software followed by uninstalling the Intel PROSet/Wireless Bluetooth software ( I used Revo uninstaller for these steps).
3. I then ran Ccleaner to get rid of anything that was left over including left over registry entries followed by rebooting my laptop.
4. I then installed the latest Intel PROSet/Wireless software 18.104.22.168 followed by disabling U- APSD support in the advanced driver settings.
5. I then rebooted my laptop and checked on connection speed which was showing as 300Mbps, followed by doing a download speed test and a ping test to make sure all was well.
6. I then did another reboot followed by installing the latest Intel PROSet/Wireless Bluetooth software.
7. Finally another reboot followed by further checks and tests as mentioned above.
I would like to point you to an article I came across Wireless wi-fi 802.11n troubleshooting fixing tips
I hope this helps in some way or another.
