    @SL2 I installed Intel aptX driver on system with Intel 7260AC, in hope that this driver will allow additional Bluetooth audio connectivity modes. Instead, it broke Bluetooth audio playback, so I removed it.

    APT-X is a codec that allows for a higher audio quality, it won't enable things that were not enabled by the default configuration.

    I see. Did you use BT drivers directly from Intel or from WU?

    I've only used drivers downloaded from Intel, that worked for me.

    To me it seems like he got it working, but the network speed dropped. Are we reading the same text? :)

    Yeah, took an Intel 7260 and popped it in my ITX board and so far so good. The issue that guy was having was that Bluetooth adds a lot of interference in the 2.4Ghz band. Therefore his Wi-fi speeds plummet when using 2.4Ghz Wi-fi and Bluetooth. I also experience this, but luckily I do have a dual band router and range isn't an issue for me.

    Oh, I cannot say anything about that - Honestly I have no idea what to do there. I didn't see any differences in wifi speeds, but I keep BT off while not in usage

    With my 7265 -

    2.4 GHz with BT: 33 Mb/s
    2.4 GHz no BT: 77 Mb/s
    5 GHz: 110 Mb/s, with or without BT.

    I guess you must switch to a channel with less interference from your router settings page. Also, use Wifi analyzer app to check optimal channel for your region and device.
