Acer :: Upgrading Intel Wireless-AC7260 WLAN Card Into Aspire V3-471G
Dec 25, 2014
When I put the brand new Intel Wireless-AC7260 WLAN Card into Acer Aspire V3-471G, it got problems. It unable to go BIOS, keyboard hang (Unable to type), it crash the Windows 7 and 8.1. Is it possible to upgrade to Intel Wireless AC-7260 WLAN Card into the Acer Aspire V3-471G. My Acer Aspire V3-471G Configurations, Intel Core i5 3230M 2.60Ghz, 8GB RAM, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 710M, Windows 8 (Downgraded To Windows 7).
I am going to chronicle my experience with this issue. I have an Acer V7-482PG-9884 with an Intel 7260 AC wireless card running Windows 8.1 which was upgraded from Windows 8. Every 20-30 minutes, and sometimes more frequently, the internet connection drops while still connected to Wifi. Upon running the auto fix within internet explorer, Microsoft identifies the issue as a "The Defaul Gateway is Not Available." The internet connection is reset, and everything works fine for another 15-30 minutes whereby the issue repeats.
I've tried everything, switching to a different Intel Card 6205, using each and every driver available from Intel, nothing seems to properly remedy the issue. This includes playing with the power settings, turning off and on bluetooth, etc.
This is a known and widespread issue with Acer, Intel, and Microsoft.

im having a problem with my 1525 inspiron laptop, which i have had for a couple of years. The problem started when installed windows 7. My wireless minicard stops working anytime i try playing an online game. The mouse starts freezing and then the wireless card would stop working. The only way can it working again is to reboot the laptop or put it to sleep the start it up again.
The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. I don't know if it's because I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I used that previously when I need to go to safe mode. Suddenly it disappeared. I can only pick two options, "Continue to Windows 8.1" and "Turn off the PC".
I have the 4965AGN WLAN on my lappy and I'm getting speed of 144Mb/s on my wireless network. I have another computer with Edimax 7728n wireless pci card and with it i can get up to 300Mb/s. I want to try to upgrade my 4965 to a new 5300 mini pcie so maybe my speed will improve. I wonder if the 5300 will work on my lappy ?
Right now I have a Intel Pro 2200 wireless card. It only has wireless B. I can get a 3945 card for $12.50 shipped that has wireless G and B, or an Atheros card. I'm not sure what the whole wireless "N" thing is, so maybe someone could fill me in on that. Right now I only need the "G" capabilities as far as as I know. Is the Intel Pro 3945 the best bang for the buck? I see theres also a a 4945, but its almost double the price of the 3945. And as I mentioned above, I see Atheros cards, but I'm not sure how good they are. Do they have better wireless pick-up then the actual Intel cards?
The DV5T seemed to be working pretty well for me and no real wireless issues.
What has happened is that since I upgraded to Windows 7 and the new drivers, I get some hitching, rubberbanding in games, slow speeds at times, etc.
Now I know Windows 7 is pretty rock solid and the new drivers came from the HP site.
But when I started googling, seems TONS of people have issues with the 5100 card and maybe I was just lucky before.
At first I noticed my card speed goes from ~50 MBPS to max of 130 MBPS. After reading, it seems even though my router supports 40ghz dual channel yadda yadda, the card only goes to 2.4 so it can't really run at 40ghz is my understanding and that 130 MBPS is pretty much the cap.
That said, it was that way before the Win 7 upgrade so that shouldn't change anything.
One thing I noticed is that in my device driver before the upgrade, it was a normal 5100 but now with the drivers, I see a 5100 AGN.
I can't find how the AGN and non-AGN versions differ?
Could it be I have AGN drivers for a non-AGN card?
Lastly, is this wireless card removable and upgradable or can I use the slot (empty) that I have for another card and disable the wireless 5100 through BIOS?
if the Intel Ultimate-N 5300 Wireless Wifi Link Card will work on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop?
I currently use the Intel 4965A AGN so i have the 3 antennas connected to it, But i can't find any confirmation that the 5300 will work with the M1530. I see that it says it's for the Centrino 2 but i don't know if it's for a certain motherboard or chipset.
Recently bought a Acer Aspire Nitro v15 with windows 8.1 with a qualcomm atheros ar5bwb222 wireless network card. The connection is really unstable and often disconnects and have very few bars. This is not from the router since the connection on my phone and other computers are fine. The connection (when i have it) is also really slow compared to when i use my phone on the same network. I tried updating the drivers but it says my latest drivers are installed. Could this be a Windows 8.1 problem? this is my first time owning a windows 8.1 computer.
is theire an possible option to get an Intel 7260HMW card (wireless AC) up and running on Lenovo T430 - Type: 2350-1B6 - Bios: G1ETA5WW (2.65 ). I runs on failure on boot, assuming this is related to the BIOS, but i use the newest one.
I have installed a V-lited version of vista onto my acer aspire one, but cant get the Lan to work or the Wlan, the Wlan doesnt even show up in the device manager and i cant find drivers for it as i dont know wat module it is.
Does anyone know which wireless card it is or were i can find drivers for the wlan?
Also i cant find a driver for the ethernet controller.
some hppened to windows vista installed and i was left with no option but to format. i downgraded to xp sp3 and installed all the drivers. but wlan and bluetooth are not working even i have installed the drivers. it seems that the buttons on the unit are not working.
I bought an ACER Aspire 7720G Intel Core 2 Duo with Vista SP1 3 weeks ago and have now some problems with my WLan and with booting after sleep. WLan only works when I restart the computer after swiching on the WLan connection either by pressing the WLan button or by activating the connection in "networks and sharing center" (at least it works then, but it's annoying to restart the computer all the time). Since I use WLan at home I get a message while booting the system (Broadcom UNDI PXE.... Client... MAC ADDR:... GUID... DHCP ...not found..blabla). I use a Lan connection at work and here I have no problems yet. My second problem is that my computer really stays asleep after I woke it up from sleep or just if I would not use it some minutes. It does not show any system related information anymore and I can only restart it again. I have looked up my BIOS and it is Version 1.44 (read the thread about the BIOS problems),
i am getting an acer travelmate 5720 which is coming with inbuilt graphics card..x3100 graphics accelerator..i was wonderin hw this graphics card is.. and one more question is whether i can upgrade the graphics card from the inbuilt to any better cards...
