    I just got an intel ac 9260 card that I ordered off ebay. It arrived from China. I installed it, and then tested the speed using Netstress. An Asus AC68U router is one floor above the room behind me, so I figure there are a few walls for the signal to go through.

    Here are the results:
    2.4 Ghz connection: RSSI b/n 44 and 46. Nestress speed 3.89 MBps (SD +- 0.7).
    5Ghz connection: RSSI b/n 50 and 58. Netstress speed 7.95 MBps (SD +- 0.65).

    This replaced an intel ac 8265, which I gave to my father in law, and which had better results on the 5Ghz - about 15 MBps from the same location (from what I remember - can't test it now for the exact numbers).

    Could someone from china ship me a fake network adapter card?

    Did you uninstall the drivers for the old card?

    Other than that, the 9260 is a relatively new device, so it doesn't have the time behind it for driver fixes and what not...

    The two cards work off of the same drivers. However, I did uninstall and reinstall them just in case before i ran the tests. Hopefully you are right and we will see new drivers, otherwise I am inclined to buy the older card for $20.

    9260 supports 160mhz are you able to test that? Will need a compatible router such as Netgear R7800 thou
