    I was supposed to get the Ultimate-N 6300, but the seller didn't quite know which unit I was talking about. I thought the R1 maxed out at 6300 already. It's nice to know that it can handle a 7260. Will it be a normal PnP (aside from the required driver of course)?

    I'm highly interested on the consensus would be.

    OT: What's the max non-OC'd RAM that can be PnP'd for the R1? I was hoping if there's any chance of a dual channel 3000 MHz setup working.

    Broadcom aka Dell Wireless 1550 works properly. Use dell drivers and force install them through device manager.
