Intel AC 7260

  • I just installed my AmpliFi Alien router the other day and 31 of my clients had no issue connecting to WiFi. My older Lenovo ThinkPad with Intel dual band wireless AC 7260 card in it can't see any WiFi signal. If I plug my Linksys WUSB6100M network adapter into the notebook it does see the WiFi signal and can connect. I'm not sure if this is a bug, an incompatibility issue with the installed wireless card or there's a setting in the router that may make it work. Any thoughts or suggestions?

  • Hi @ChelseaOilman - I have had this happen with a couple Intel WiFi laptops from work too

    I had to enable the WiFi-5 “Additional 5 GHz Radio” to get them on the network, and I also used a different SSID for the WiFi5 network to avoid roaming between the radios

  • I had the same issue and if I installed the latest AC 7260 drivers from the Intel site which fixed this issue for me.
