Updated from an Intel Ultimate 6300 3x3 connecting to a Netgear R6300 AC 3x3 router - which would only occasionally be able to connect at 450Mbps (aka 3 streams) and transfer at around 16-20MB/s.

This card is only 2x2 thus requires only 2 antennas; a pity Intel has not released a 3x3 MIMO which while perhaps not improve speeds would have increased reliability especially in difficult situations.

In the same room the link speed is reliably 833Mbps and transfers at 40-48MB/s, thus we're looking at ~2x bandwidth improvement, quite a result considering it is using only 2 streams.

So is it hard to upgrade? Find the laptop manual or pictures on the 'net, open it up - locate current card, disconnect antennas, remove it, install new card and off you go. Make sure you grab the latest Intel drivers off its website for the right OS (e.g. Windows 8.1, 8.0, 7) as the packages/drivers are slightly different.

Note that you can upgrade any laptop as long as it has a half-height mini PCIe slot; any laptop in the last 3 years or so should have this; you can even upgrade 4-5 year old laptops with full-height mini PCIe slots but you require a metal plate to "lengthen" the card to full height.

Note that very modern laptops (thus late 2013+) require M2 version of the card.

I replaced my existing Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card with this one and Windows automatically detected it and installed the drivers. I was up and running straight away, connected to Wi-Fi very easily. I also tested the screen mirroring using Windows 8.1 Wi-Di to a Samsung F series TV and it worked a treat :-). Although when sending video to the TV screen there was buffering and the sound was out of sync, I guess it has it's limitations. I had another issue with Bluetooth partially working, I could pair but not all features such as headset microphone would work. I downloaded the Intel driver and the Bluetooth completely disappeared from Device Manager! I ended up having to remove the card, start the laptop up, then shut the laptop down and reinsert the card. Everything appeared correctly after restarting, including Bluetooth. All in for the price and if it works with your laptop it brings some nice features and faster Wi-Fi, very pleased.

If someone is wondering what's the difference between 7260.XXXX are

The Intel model numbers are as follows. Provantage listed mfr# 7260.HMWG for the 7260.HMW Dual Band Wireless 802.11ac mini-pci card.

7260.HMW​
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260​
2.4/5 Ghz 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Bluetooth 4.0 ​
HMC Form factor (M.2 Format 7260.NGW)​

7260.HMW AN ​
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260​
2.4/5 Ghz 802.11 a/b/g/n Bluetooth 4.0 ​
HMC Form factor (M.2 Format 7260.NGW AN)​

7260.HMW NB​
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260​
2.4/5 Ghz 802.11 a/b/g/n ​
HMC Form factor (M.2 Format 7260.NGW NB)​

7260.HMW BN​
Intel® Wireless-N 7260 Plus Bluetooth​
2.4 Ghz 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth 4.0 ​
HMC Form factor (M.2 Format 7260.NGW BN)​

The M.2 form factor is smaller for new ultrabooks, click on one of the product brief links and you can see the two form factors (and dimensions) on the data sheets. For example, the Dell 1505 wireless card is HMC form factor.

Edit (2013/07/06) Intel uses two suffixes (G & WB, order qty. 10 and 100 units, respectively) with the 7260 product codes; e.g. the 1/2 size mini-pci card with 802.ac & BT capability is 7260.HMWG or 7260.HMWWB.

I bought this after upgrading my internet connection to 152mbps so wanted to get the faster speeds this card is supposed to offer, however I'm not able to connect at high speeds for more than 20-30 minutes before the network connection drops completely and the laptop needs to be restarted (or switch to a wired connection)

I've since discovered that many other people are having the same issue with this card, and so far the only 'fix' is to disable HT mode, meaning you're capped at 54mbps. Intel have been aware of this for quite a while but haven't been able to fix it yet, so until they do I'd avoid this completely.

Very easy to install on my Asus N550JV laptop. Simply undid one screw, removed the 2 antennas, removed the card, slotted the new card in, replaced the antennas and screw and all done. My wireless N speed over the past 5 months averaged about 45Mbs. Now, after running the network speed check over 20 times, I'm averaging about 65Mbs - a near 50% improvement. I can't speak about the performance versus other AC cards, but certainly I'm pleased, especially given the cost of the upgrade, that there has been a significant performance bump. Don't forget that in order to get wireless AC speeds you need a wireless AC router as well.

It's only a two antenna device so can't achive the highest AC rates, but it works very well with my Netgear R7000 router, 866.7 Mbps is good enough for me, and actual sustained throughput easily passes 300Mbps (which is about the limit my heavily used gigabit network will support).
