AC wireless card for G75VW??

Does anyone know if there is an AC Wireless card out to upgrade to on my G75VW?
I have the Asus Router that supports AC but my G75 doesn't have the card.
I knew about this awhile back when I purchased the Router but was checking to see
if there is now one that can be put in my G75.

Please let me know if anyone does

_Thanks

Do you get better overall quality than the Atheros Card? Better range and overall stability?

Yea I was thinking that too, so I already placed my order. I have never had a wireless Card function so horribly before.

I had an Intel 6300 last, and it had driver issues. I'm using a Killer-N 1103 right now, waiting on Killer to have AC cards.

AC wireless card for G55VW Intel 7260 bluetooth not working.

I have a G55 Win7 with the 7260.HMW card. The Wifi works great on N (I don't have my ac router yet). However, my bluetooth doesn't work. My computer doesn't even recognize it. My original Atheros (Azurewave AR5B225) card with bluetooth worked fine. I just wanted more range/speed. I haven't seen anybody say their bluetooth even worked or does anybody even use it. I've tried all the drivers from Asus and Intel that I could find. I would use another card if I could find one with dual band, ac, bluetooth, but I Asus won't tell me which cards I can use. Any ideas. Thanks!

I just installed the Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2x2 AC+Bluetooth HMC and right away I'm much happier then the Atheros. In the same location I was before, the Atheros would get 3-5Mbps while right now the 7260 gets 35Mbps stable. Direcgt Connected I get 35Mbps so to me it's perfectly fine. I have it paired with the Asus RT-AC66U and very happy now. Wireless was my biggest problem with this computer and it was a real walk in the park to do. Asus kept telling me it was integrated but it's not. It's just on the top of the MB and requires you to remove the keypad so it takes longer then most computers who have the wireless card in an upgradeable location.

My advice to anyone who has slight problems with you wireless is just to do it. If you can't do it yourself then a shop should be able to do it for no more than $100. I'd be happy to do it for anyone located in Florida as it makes such a huge improvement.

I upgraded to the 6235 back months ago - all is well but contemplating upgrading to the 7260. Is there anything better out there currently or is the 7260 still the best option?

If Bluetooth and everything working?

Thanks!

an intel 7260 coupled with rt-ac66u is not bad. running at 866.7 Mbps now (or 433.3 Mbps if there are other devices with wifi-n are connected).

with time there will be better products. for now, i think 7260 is fine. aw 17 has a broadcom .ac wifi. it's by default 2x2 wifi+bt, not 3x3. i'm not sure if it's good.

the bluetooth is working fine. i a using orochi bt mouse.

I was starting to have connection issues with my lappy and upgraded do to your suggestion along with putting in some matching CORSAIR Vengeance sticks in "16 Gigs" and I have to say that I'm one happy panda now. Thanks a bunch.

Thanks. Ill wait it out a bit more for a few options. Hooked up my ea6500 but no ac devices to test it out 😉

So far the only ac card Bluetooth and wifi compatible is the 7260?
