    Forget everything you see in the Intel forums. As far as I am concerned. The Intel Forums are as worthless as the forums. Also that is regarding the older N-7260 chipset, not the AC-7260 chipset.

    The reason Intel needs testing people is because of the massive incompatibility between wireless AC and older N clients. No amount of guess work will fix these types of problems.

    Still true > You need a dual band AC router if you want consistent connectivity with AC clients. I guess nobody else has done the testing I have with AC hardware and N clients. I've also seen the same problem on multiple occasions.
