    Slow download speeds (Under 7Mbps) on AC 7260 - Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI


      I have a Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI motherboard with the Intel AC 7260 wireless chip and Windows 8.1.


      The PC is NOT having trouble connecting or staying logged on to wifi -- but the download speeds are SLOOOOWW.


      Upgraded to driver v17.16.4.

      Tried disabling Bluetooth.

      Tried messing around with advanced settings as per these forums.

      Tried connecting at 2.4GHz

      Tried rolling back to driver v17.00.34.

      Tried changing all power management settings to max performance.

      Even tried running without antenna plugged in (no change to speed but signal strength showed as lower).


      I cannot hit speeds over 6 or 7 Mbps. Other devices on my network regularly hit internet speeds of over 100Mbps.


      In the windows wireless properties it shows the network speed at 180Mbps


      Note: my Upload speeds are coming in at the ISP capped 20Mbps. It is just the download that seems affected.


      Here's the real kicker, when I plug in an old USB 802.11N device (only supports 2.4GHz) I hit download speeds approaching 15Mbps!


      Your help is appreciated.
