Unfortunately, we can't provide support for the firmware of this device any more.
Comment 2 Turtle 2017-11-27 15:00:10 UTC
That's strange the card is not very old and I imagine there are quite a few out there in use on Linux systems.
Who's 'we'? Intel?
Assuming the 'We' is Intel and now that the card is end of life is there some place I can get some info about the chip to write my own firmware that works?
I am pretty sure the issue has to do with a 5ghz AP since I have not run into it before.
Thanks in advance!

We is Intel.

We can't provide much info about the hardware / firmware that would allow you to write your own unfortunately.
Comment 4 Turtle 2017-11-27 16:09:02 UTC
Well that's too bad can you recommend a well supported card to replace it?
Comment 5 Emmanuel Grumbach 2017-11-27 16:12:57 UTC
Using the same connector you have 7260.

Fairly old as well but critical bugs should be handled there.

Thank you
