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

ok 🙂

er.. the 7260 is the only .ac card i have now. i guess we all need to wait for a bit for new ones 🙂

Installed the Intel 7260AC in my G75VW this morning. I've been testing it all day.
Paired with my 802.11AC router (Netgear R6300), it's an absolute beast.
Multiboxing three EVE clients plus Teamspeak and Mumble. No lag or latency.
Now to test how it does on hotel wireless on my next trip.

hey guys - how is the 7260AC treating you? is it still the best wifi + bluetooth option for the g75vw?

thanks!

Mine is running great. Paired up with the R6300 router, it gives the best wireless speeds I've ever seen. On older routers it certainly performs at least as well as the better 802.11n cards out there.
I've seen a few issues reported on various forums out there, but they are mostly found to be faulty antennae connections or less than optimal locations. I've paired a few devices with the bluetooth radio, but I don't actually use it much, so I can only say that it passes a few tests.

thanks for the info. i have an ea6500 router so should be seeing good speeds as well.

I recently installed the AC 7260 as well. I found the driver for windows 8, and it is working fine (after some rookie nervous moments when I couldnt originally find the driver and thought there was a problem with the 7260AC itself.

I noticed my wireless speed is now capped at 130mbs (which is an improvement from the 65mbs I had been receiving on the old stock adapter. Is this due to the Verizon Fios N-Series router limitations? Would I simply need to purchase an AC router to make full use of this adapter? Sorry for stupid question.

130mbs is the limit of this Verizon FiOS router.

Is this similar to yours?

Yes, it is. Does this mean I simply need to invest in an AC router and stop using the router that was provided to us?

Also, why are certain things running choppy when 130mbps is "twice" as good as the 65mbps showed on the prior card. I must not have the settings right.

Replacing the slower router will obviously give you better performance. As for the choppy behavior on the current router, there are a lot of variables when it comes to network performance.
I would tend to assume that the upstream conditions on a FiOS line would be good and that the latency you experience when running at the router's max speed was the result of performance issues with the router. Now that it's maxed out, behavior you haven't seen before might become apparent.
When things are choppy, are you streaming from the Internet, or from a media server on the network?
