    Whats the best laptop half size mini pcie wifi adapter available?


    im looking to buy a great wifi card for my laptop, i have a Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 and it is horrible! and before that a ralink atheros card. with this intel card i have i cant even connect my bluetooth headset to it because it crackles and disconnects, its so bad that i have to be in clear line of sight, perfectly still and within 2 feet for it not to act up. and yes i have tried every trick i can imagine, from making sure it wasn't in power saving to massing around with all the advanced options i can understand and making sure the drivers are up to date. as for gaming controllers i use my ps4 controller to play games on the laptop and it will randomly disconnect and and give heavy input delay. Also the wifi is 5g and its still isn't that great, its slow at times and im right in front the router. and my laptop was broken for a couple of months and i was using a replacement with a lower older intel 5g wifi card and it was flawless, it was a m.2 but my laptop dosent have a m.2.

    So i am looking for a great replacement wifi card that is resistant to interference and that can have great bluetooth and 5g wifi without catching interference from usb 3.0
    someone once told me that a company called AzureWave was good.

    Interesting. I have that same exact card in my Dell Precision M4800 and it works flawlessly. I couldnt ask for a better card. Aside from Intel, I would suggest Atheros or Broadcom.

    THis probably would be a good one as well: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CUK-Killer-D...gAAOSwTglYl0uu

    ITs used in a lot of gaming and high end laptops.

    I have two laptops with Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 in them and it is fantastic! The WiFi card can only be as good as what it is connected to, though. You might have a bad antenna connection or just poorly designed antennae.

    well its not my router, because where ever i go it acts up, even on my friends router which is a high end gaming router. and the antenna shouldn't effect bluetooth as far as i know bluetooth is emitted directly from the chip.

    There's this one:
    Amazon.com: AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB/BCM94352 802.11/ac/867Mbps WLAN + BT4.0 Half Mini PCI-E Card: Computers & Accessories

    Got no idea if it's good or not. I think you are going to find here, though, that any of us that have upgraded our own laptops to AC dual band use the Intel 7260s.

    And that particular WiFi card has worked perfectly in two laptops of mine and if I had any more laptops that needed upgraded that is the adapter that I would purchase for them.

    ok now i really need help, i borrowed my friends laptop half mini and the exact same thing is happening, what can it be?
    Ok it seems to be working somehow, i opened up the laptop and took out the antennas and air dusted and alcohol and what not and force uninstalled all the intel wifi and stock wifi drivers as well as bluetooth drivers and fresh installed the drivers and the bluetooth is working great! i can be in the next room and still hear it. wifi is also uncapped from 150Mbps too. ill try some power cycles and see if it stays.
