    Yoga 2 Pro 7260AC Win8.1 64 Slooooooow

      I have seen many posts about this with lots of different problems.  Here's mine.  I upgraded from the 7260N card, looking to take advantage of 5GHz connectivity. 

       

      Recently installed the 7260AC card in my Yoga 2 Pro.  Works great @ 2.4GHz.  That means ~50MB/s download.  Switching to 5 GHz yields slightly higher (maybe 55MB/s)....for a little while, then the connection drops and resets.  Again and again and again, just about every 5 seconds.  Why?  This makes Internet use impossible

       

      Compared to another Dell laptop (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205) in the same house, at the same physical location, gets steady 50MB/s at 2.4GHz and 95-100MB/s @ 5GHz.

       

      I have installed the 17.0.5.8 driver and am frustrated.  What am I doing wrong?  Should I consider a different card?  I pay for 100MB/s speeds and want to be able to make use of it.
