    SO after months of issues with two intel 7260s in different computers ive made the mistake of buying an 8260 to replace the one in my MSI GT80. Now instead of just randomly breaking itself, it now randomly breaks itself AND breaks itself when the computer wakes from sleep! Are there any wireless cards that aren't mass defective??? I just want one computer without this kind of issue! Did i miss a miracle driver? How does anyone get these to work?

    I've tried the winsocks and hitting the resetlog.log and i've tried multiple drivers, but nothing is working! Is there a specific chipset the motherboard has to have to use these without activating the timebomb crash?

    @Rothcall did you update your machine's BIOS?

    I had absolutely ZERO problems with my Intel 8260, although I rarely used it after putting the computer to sleep (since I never used sleep mode; SSD's take less than 10 seconds to load windows). But the few times I did put it to sleep, it did wake up. I have an 8265 now with no problems.

    Are you using the PROSET software? Everyone says proset causes problems.
    try using driver only.

    click the one that says Driver.

    Uninstall the Intel PRO/SET then the Intel Bluetooth Software from Control Panel > Programs & Features then reboot.

    Now, download the latest driver: Intel WLAN Driver v19.50.1.5 / BT v19.60.0

    Install the WLAN Driver from device manager by pointing to the extracted folder INF Files after right clicking on the Network Controller device if it was unidentified or expanding the Network Adapters and choosing the Intel WLAN Card then right click and choose update driver.

    Reboot, then install the latest Bluetooth driver linked above then reboot again.

    Lemme know if that works.
