    My 7260 has issues on my AC band.. Lol. My ac7265 is fine, quite troublesome. I'll try the suggestion above see if that works, what driver you on HTWingNut?

    It is just so sad that Intel releases such a product laden with issues and doesn't care at all. Thankfully plenty of good people who were screwed over by Intel have been able to pretty much fix this. In the future I think I'm going to stay completely away from Intel wireless cards. They are the most widely known and available, but not the best.

    intel does have its problems, but there is hardly any competition. None care about pc anymore!

    That never worked for me with the Intel AC cards. It has to do with a setting in the the card itself, nothing that a software app can fix.

    No need to do any tweaks on mine. It works the way it should and no lag spikes whatsoever.

    Well, one of the things WLAN Optimizer does is the registry edit you mentioned here:

    It's a Windows setting, not a wireless card setting.

    With my AC 7260 and other Intel wireless cards connected to a TP-LINK Archer C7 V2 router, I don't get ping spikes while gaming as long as I'm using WLAN Optimizer. I haven't disabled UAPSD or touched any of the other wireless settings.

    Yes, but it's a setting specific to that card. In any case it seems to work great now. Why Intel doesn't make it work out of the box I will never know.

    That isn't true at all. There are Broadcom and Qualcomm-Atheros, whose products are every bit as good and in some cases superior to those of Intel. When it comes to wireless networking, Intel only has the upper hand in marketing.
