Check the advanced Wi-Fi adapter settings in PROSet.
Look for "HT Mode/VHT Mode"
This settings lets you select HT Mode (High Throughput mode), VHT Mode (Very High Throughput Mode) or lets you disable both modes.
HT Mode supports 802.11n compatibility
VHT Mode supports 802.11ac compatibility.
Check to see if you have this setting in VHT Mode
Thanks for your reply.
I'll try it in Windows when possible. As for the linux part, could you please tell me where I can get the latest drivers? I think I have the latest official driver, and it's actually working, it just keeps using 802.11abgn instead of .11ac.
I'm a newbie in Linux, sorry about some many questions.
Here's the only one I can find: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&FamilyId=1783&LineId=1784&ProductID=3714&ProdId=3714
Just select Linux on dropdown list.
I've never used Linux so I can't help you configure the firmware settings.

Intel Customer Support does not directly support Linux drivers for our wireless products. Here is a link that hopefully helps you find the Linux drivers and support you're looking for: http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-034398.htm
Driver support can be found on the Linux community page
