the other router is an asus RT-AC66U.
It's in a private network - my home environment.
Adaptors on my other home computers also show some of the neighbours routers (don't know the models, they're all private networks) the ac 7260 doesn't show most of these.
I perhaps should also have mentioned I'm using ASRock 97 Extreme6 Beta Bios 2.04.

Can you connect to your home network ?
Just to make sure we are on the same page here, your computer is a desktop, correct?
Are you able to connect in both bands 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz using this computer?
What is the driver version of your wireless card?
Change the HT mode to VHT

Yes, I can connect, and I think I now know what the problem is (more below).
Yes, the computer is a desktop.
Not sure if can connect in both bands - I'll try when I connect again (requires moving the desktop!).
Driver version: 184.108.40.206
Mode is VHT.
Thanks for the link.
I think the problem is: signal is too weak (maybe the sm951 is shielding the card and / or the card is not getting enough power).
I think this because: when I move the desktop right next to the router in question the adapter shows the signal (though only 4/5 bars at less than a meter).
Solution: I'm going to try a Mini PCI-E To PCI-E Wireless Adapter Card +/- some additional power from the PCIe power connector into the adapter card. (This is probably a good idea just to give the sm951 a little more room for heat - it seems to run fairly cool at the moment, but I gather it's not thermally throttled.)
What do you think?
