Summary: I am still really confused about 800.11AC, was supposed to be faster than Gig Ether but I have never heard of anything faster in 800Mbs. Anyway, it is faster than N so I am happy about that usually getting around 500-650Mbs out of mine but I am on the second floor and across the house from the router so the range is pretty good as well, since I am getting 4-5 bars all day long. It does occasionally drop but it seems to coincide with me turning on my laptop.
AMD motherboard and AMD CPU and AMD EVERYTHING Including video cards! & just works as should fullspeed 866.7WIFI & Bluetooth 4x
2 weeks ago
Summary: I wanted to let every know this is an amazing device! System specs. Case D900 (search on amazon) Top of the line IMHO! Gigabyte AMD Motherboard 990 FXA UD3 AMD CPU Black edition 4GHZ 32GB Ram 1333 Laptop memory converted to Desktop Memory using "Jujet DDR3 204pin SODIMM adapter" 2x GPU's XFX R9 280x Black DD Edition & Now NEWLY ADD & WORKING BOTH AC and B4.0 (Intel Dual BAND Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth 4.0) Pro's Intel Processor 4th or 3rd Gen i7 i5 i3 not required...
Summary: I had been waiting a while for the price on this to go down and was gratified to see it on sale at Amazon. If you have Windows 8.1 and an Intel Processor, this is the wireless adapter you want: all the WiFi you need, from the newest AC to a/b/g/n. PLUS Bluetooth and Intel WiDi thrown in for good measure! Along with a Netgear Push2TV, I am streaming content from my PC to my TV with no problem at all.
Summary: Definitely not the fastest AC card out there, but it has great range. I had an Asus USB AC dongle, which was definitely quick, but had issues staying connected. With this card, I have no problem getting connected quickly, and staying that way. Speeds are great - I'm connected at 351mbps. Not as good as I'm sure they could be, but I'm pretty far from my router, and all of the N equipment I used to have had an issue getting connected at all.
Summary: Out of the box, this item is completely unusable. A little background on the environment being tested in... I have a netgear nighthawk r7000 1900AC router, this item was installed to my HTPC with windows 7 on it, the TV connected to it is an LG smart tv with 5ghz capabilities, I reside in a small apartment with one paper thin wall between the router and my room, with a total distance of about 15-20 feet.
Summary: The antenna was much larger than I thought (1.5in square), but other than that it's great. Intel provides good drivers that work very smoothly compared to the Rosewill adapter it replaced. Make sure to go to Intel's website and get the latest drivers for the device. I recommend installing the Bluetooth drivers they offer as well.
Summary: This gizmo puts mo in the gizmo. It is easy to install, the antenna leads make for grabbing alot more signal. The bluetooth gives me the ability to attach fun things like my portable keyboard, and my HTC cell phone (which is now a remote due to my motherboard which has R 2.0 built in.) Win 8.1 seams to connect well too. It has been operating for over 60 day now without incident.
Great AC card, great price & performance; broken BT setup
2 weeks ago
Summary: Intel people makes quality products (except Atom). I am able to connect at 866.7Mbps with my Linksys EA6700 router. The biggest problem is the BlueTooth setup. The setup disk does not include a BT driver and software. The card also needs to plug a 4-pin jumper into an open USB 9-pin connector on the Motherboard to enable BT. If you follow the instructions, you will get an unrecognized USB device. Here're the changes I made to enable BT: 1.
The only affordable pci wireless AC adapter for desktops

Summary: This is the first wireless AC card I've seen for desktops that isn't ~$100. Works great! Antenna has a much higher gain than the one I was using (according to inSSIDer). The cable is only 4 feet long, but it gets it out from under my desk. Speedtest blows away my old N card. Only issue I had was that the pin orientation on the bluetooth cable is labeled backwards. I flipped it over and bluetooth worked.
[BLUETOOTH CODE 43? READ THIS] Good card with some initial issues which were fixed. Read on...

Summary: Pros: - It's relatively stable once connected. Ping times always <1ms to router, ~15ms to ISP. - Drivers for it are non-intrusive. Intel-exclusive settings are disabled by default, one can enable them in connection details. - Detachable antenna is really nice. This card gets better reception with it than my old wireless card with two antenna sticks did.
