I was about to pull the trigger on the Intel AC 7260 PCI-e for, my laptop, when i noticed there is two models; HMWWB and HMWWB.R
Can't seem the find any difference other then one costs a little bit more then the other.. At least here in Denmark it does
Hope you can help.
If I recall correctly - the only difference is the sticker/decal on the card - some countries require regulatory approval stamps on the card...
..but you have to almost take the entire laptop apart to install it.
Hmm.. just seems pretty odd that one costs more then the other.. Its just a few bucks, but it makes me think that a sticker is'nt all there is to it.
Maybe the .R is a new Revision?
Thought about writing intel support, but they wanted me to register with address, phonenumber and what not.. There must be some Intel wizards inhere
Two different cards. One is including -AC mode, the other is just -N mode one
I have used quite a few of both.
It appears .r is the Revised edition
"New Revision (for September 1, 2014)"
I can't easily find what the revision does though, except one person saying "increased compatibility". If I were you, I'd probably just get the cheaper one.
Also, you misunderstood the earlier poster. They said they *hope* the 7260 is on the whitelist for Asus. However, I have an Asus laptop with a 7260, and when researching before, it appeared Asus laptops don't have a whitelist - you can put anything in and it will accept it.
As far as I know Asus, MSI don't have white list. HP, Lenovo do. You can go around white list by patching BIOS but bit risky.(if mistake is made patching,
laptop dies, LOL!)
thanks for the info. I'm getting me a few of those.
HeyBy turning it on, do you mean waking it from sleep? If so, then you might need to untick some boxes under the network adapter properties, such as allowing the adapter to be powered off by windows. Might need to do the same under your power profile for PCIe.
Other thoughts, have you tried deleting the wireless network and reconnecting? Other option, delete the wifi adapter under device manager and then on reboot Windows will reinstall the adapter (this will also delete any stored wifi networks). See if maybe that solves it.
Everything seems great! ...Exept.. when I turn on my laptop it wont connect to my network. Neither automatic or manual. But after a restart it connects perfectly, every d*mn time! Anyone have any ideas about it?
Considering reinstalling Windows. Its about that time anyways
