RE: Dell Inspiron 15 7000(7537) WiFi issue

Jump to solution

I purchased the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 for £29 on ebay.co.uk  I will have known the answer by the next week.

By the way I tested this laptop on two routers with standard WiFi adapter and on the Netgear DGN2200 v3 WiFi is work like a charm. But on the other house where is standard, cheap router from internet supplier WiFi is not working correctly. There are big lags, transfer rate is mostly bellow 80 kB/s. It is impossible to watch clips on youtube etc.

Did you test it after replacing with Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 card or before?

I did not replace the card yet, I just made purchase. When I finally get 7260 AC card than I put into the laptop and I will test again and share the results in this topic. I think it’s take a week, I am a little bit busy.

I have bought this computer yesterday. There are same problems with wifi, but I have one more problem, that is not described in any forum. Any program, launched from start menu, doesn't find internet connection: weather, maps, even windows store isn't working. I have G-Data antivirus installed. I tried to shut down windows firewall and G-Data antivirus, but still no luck. Have anyone experienced this problem? How to fix it?

i replaced my card to 7260 ac . the wifi is stable now. I would suggest you to download the latest driver and latest bios. Uninstall the Intel network utility and let windows control the connection.

And to all of those who dont wanna change the card please do this"""" uninstall the Wireless-N 7260 adapter repeatedly until it reverts to the original Microsoft network driver. then re-install the latest Intel driver only - no PROSet application - and the network connection will be stable.
