    Win7 x64+Intel AC 7260/BT+Netgear r7000 Nighthawk - NO AC CONNECTION/SPEEDS

    MrGillen

      Hello Community & Intel.

       

               I recently upgraded my networking to AC. Currently 50MB/s+ connection from my ISP. I am staying connected but coming up on several short comings from one or both devices. I have read the discussion board but haven not found any solutions. If anyone could help, I would appreciate it.

       

              ISSUES: 1.) Intel card is not showing up as Bluetooth capable. In Advanced settings on the card it shows as enabled but nothing. I have installed latest BT drivers and Pro Tools but nothing.

       

                              2.) The major issue here is I am not getting AC quality connection. Windows 7 doesn't show it as an "AC" connection but a "N" for radio type. Now from reading the board, I believe this is a simple lack of Windows 7 update. My connection speed is only 195 MB/s at the moment and range from 117-265MB/s nothing even close to the advertised AC ranges. I have tried so much with no luck.

       

         I have tried so many suggestion this board has come up with for similar problems with no luck. I will list a bit up info commonly asked for on these boards to perhaps help. Thank you in advance.
