Upgrading wireless card to dual band AC on AMD based ENVY m6...

Q: Upgrading wireless card to dual band AC on AMD based ENVY m6...

I'm needing to update my wifi card to a dual band AC & have been unable to find a definitive answer on the compatibilty of Intel cards (specifically the AC-7260) with AMD. Will it work? If not, where can I find the best upgrade options? Is there any type of list of compatible upgrade options anywhere? I have the U-Verse 1G & a Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 & currenlty max out at around 45mbs down via wireless. I can consistently get around 600-650mbs down via ethernet. I tried the Netgear A6210 usb wifi adapter (dual AC) & it worked for a while (400-450mbs) but now I'm having detection issues with it (apparently pretty common) & I'm tired of having to deal with the dongle anyway. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi all - I have a DV7-7230us that I have upgraded massively since purchasing it at a great prices about three years ago - new display, maxed memory, 500GB SDD, Win10-Pro, etc. This laptop has all the capability and raw power that I need for a laptop, but one thing that bugs me is the original wireless mini-card in it - it is single-band, 2.4GHz a/b/g. I would like to replace it with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2x2 Networok/Bluetooth adapter (7260.HMWWB.R), but just want to ensure compatibility before I start down that path - has anyone had any success and/or advice I should consider on this? If not compatible, does someone know a compatible wireless AC dual-band card that will work? Thanks!

I was wondering if anyone is having the same issue I am having. I have a HP Envy m7-n101dx notebook with an Intel ac 7265 dual band wireless adapter running 64bit Windows 10.  The wifi speed is very poor. I have an arris surfboard 6900ac modem/router. I have 300 mb/s internet service. Wired the modem gets about 350 mb/s. On wifi on the 5gz band I have a macbook that regulary gets 180-240 mb/s speeds. I also have a 5 plus year old macbook that gets 150-180 mb/s speeds. Our phones get 100-150 mb/s speeds. But this computer usually only gets about 50-80 mb/s speeds. Often it can dip below those speeds. If I open my router to 8 channels, the speeds will drop to about 8 mb/s.  Very rarely will it get upto 100 mb/s speeds. But it never gets close to the speeds it is rated to get.  I was wondering if anyone was having the same problem and if they have a solution? I have updated drivers, rolled drivers back, dowloaded directly from the intel site, and deleted and reinstalled the network adapter. Nothing has worked.

I got a new d-link wireless N router the other day which solved most of my slow internet problems. It is a dual band router and supports 5ghz but my current network card is only 2.4ghz. I'm in an apartment complex so I figure if I run it on the 5ghz band I will get much less interference from other people's wifi. Only problem is I cant really find a dual band pci card??? The only one i've found is a Linksys WMP600N. I was hoping there were some more options out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

Hello, I just got my E560 on 9/27/16. It has windows 7, 64 pro installed. I plugged in the battery and waited an hour or so before turning the system on. Everything booted ok and I entered my hidden router for my wifi. Unfortuanly, it would not connect. I finally dug out an old ethernet cable to hook up and test the system and download some software. I then unhid my router and still was not able to find it. Everyones router in the neigborhood showed up but mine. I call tech support but they claimed that it was my routers software. I have 4 other devices working just fine on the wifi and I even set my printer up for wifi while the router was hidden with no problem. I checked the Lenovo site for updates but the system said everything was up to date. I went to the Intel site and downloaded their current driver for this card. The laptop finally noticed the router while it was unhidden and I again hid the router and rebooted my Laptop. This cured the problem. However, I was displeased with Customer service they tried to tell me it was a problem with my router and not the system and all my drivers shipped from the factory were up to date. I hope this will help anyone who has a similar problem.

A:dual band wifi card vs single band wifi card

I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchaseClick to expand...

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?

what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously

the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be

if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term

some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz

I'm thinking about upgrading my Pavilion (Vista) and HP 15 (Win 10) to wireless network adapters to take advantage of 5ghz channel on my router I'm interested in the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Prior to installation, I was going to download the Intel drivers but did not find anything specific to either Visat or Windows 10 Som I thought perhaps someone out there has already been down this road and may have advice one way or the other????

Hello, I am looking to replace the wireless modem (631956-005) currently in my HP Folio 13-2000?  I researched a few threads but not getting a complete answer.  Some say the Intel 7260 802.11ac - 7260HMW will work.  Has anyone attempted this upgrade?  I would like a dual band option... the 2.4Ghz band is okay, but I have a dual band modem and would like to take advantage of the larger bandwidth options.  Looking for any insight and feedback.  Thanks!

Hello. I wanted to upgrade the wireless card in my x240 to the Wireless AC 7260 but then discovered that there is a newer version out now - Wireless AC 8260. I'm sure this will work in the x240 as long as its M.2 2230 version card. Has anyone tried this newer model? http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/dual-band-wireless-ac-8260-brief.html

This computer came with a single band wireless adapter. I need to upgrade to a Dual Band 5Ghz wireless adapter. I searched the "PartSurfer" as well as the "Maintenance and Service Guide", Model and Product numbers of the laptop matched and the suggestion was to go with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi and BlueTooth 4.0 combination WLAN adapter 710662-005. So I carefully ordered that exact module, installed it, nothing, tried different drivers and software from Intel, nothing, checked the HP support assist for updates, nothing, put the old single band card back in, works as it did previously. Why doesn't this card work when both the manual and part surfer specify this card? Please help. Thank You HP Envy 17Windows 10Model: 17t-k000P/N: G0U21AV

My Ideapad z710 came with the Intel Wireless-N 7260 (802.11bgn) which only supports 2.4Ghz. QUESTION: Is it possible to purchase the Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 (802.11agbn) which supports the 5GHz band as well and just download the appropriate drivers? I heard that Lenovo may have blocked the hardware for that specific laptop? or are these just rumors?

Hi, What dual band wifi cards are approved for the S410p? I tested a random Intel card and got the following message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Is the whitelist available online somewhere? I couldn't find it. Thanks, BM

A:Approved dual band card for S410p

Hello and welcome,
 
The best source I know is the parts list in the Hardware Maintenance Manual - IdeaPad S410p, S410p Touch, S510p, S510p Touch .  WLAN cards are on page 80.  I don't see any that are dual band from the description  - but I haven't checked each one individually.
 
As you probably know, to pass the BIOS whitelist check a card must be an approved model and have a Lenovo FRU number (firmware modified for Lenovo).

I have a dual band wireless router with 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz using the N standard. I am purchasing a laptop soon. What kind of wireless card will I need to access the the 5.0ghz frequencies? Do I need to have a dual band wireless card or will just a N standard wireless card suffice to see the 5.0 ghz? My work laptop with a "G" wireless card recognizes the 2.4ghz band only, which makes sense.

Yes it is new enough not to have the whitelist so you can install any wireless card with the right form factor.  Here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 45. HP offered this one which is the top of the line: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 BT 4.0 combo adapter 756753-001 Available on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/710661-001-Intel-Wireless-ac-7260-Pci-express/dp/B00PDLCFL8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470826413&sr=8-1&keywords=756753-001 This is a drop-in plug and play replacement. You would want to get the driver files on the hard drive (like maybe the desktop) and have them available before you make the swap to be sure the card will work once you reboot Windows. Pick your OS from the drop-down menu here: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=6943827&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059 You need the Intel wireless and Intel bluetooth drivers.  If you need more help post back.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.
