    Intel Wireless 7260 AC - Won't Reconnect After Sleep

    Hi all,

    I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro running Windows 8.1 x64 which I have switched the wifi card in to an Intel 7260 (the AC version).

    The WiFi does a lot of weird things and I have Intel driver installed, with Windows managing networks.

    1) Windows doesn't seem to remember SSID security keys. Sometimes it does, sometimes I get prompted for keys for no reason.

    2) After resuming from sleep, the card will say it is connecting to a network but it never will. I can turn WiFi off and back on and it still won't connect. The only thing that works is either a reboot, or disabling the WiFi connection and re-enabling. Then, it connects right away.

    I have uninstalled Intel drivers and reinstalled with the same results. Any ideas?

    It's definitely a driver issue. Try the drivers here: IntelĀ® Download Center
    which is known to be a good driver for many 7260 users
