I have a Precision M6500 and have been looking for a bluetooth (WPAN) card. I've looked on eBay and have searched the web but cannot find one, does anyone know where one can be purchased.

Thank you for your reply but I've seen those on eBay, the one I'm looking for can be seen on the Dell manual for the Precision M6500 under "removing the WPAN card".
Yes, with the latest Win7 drivers direct from Intel. I have yet to see any actual speed improvement over the solid 6300 card however.
I have an ASUS RT-AC68U router so I was wondering if I would get a faster connection with the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11ac/a/b/g/n 2x2 Half Mini Card.
Well, my D-Link DIR-865L AC router really doesn't produce anything above 300-400MB/s link speeds from about 25 feet away. I have not investigated it in depth, but my 6300 @ 300MB/s appears just as snappy for web and small home server use. The AC 7260 does have an occasional 2.4GHz issue waking up after system hibernation, which has been reported by many - but this is most likely just an early driver bug that will be fixed. 5GHz is fine 100% of the time. If you can find the card for under $40, it is worth it. I suspect it will live up to its potential once the AC hardware from the various OEM's evolve with improved driver support.
