I downloaded the latest windows 7 drivers previously. You need to first download the Bluetooth drivers which for windows 7 64bit is BT_3.1.1311_s64. Then I had to find the windows drivers. I used the drivers only which is Wireless_16.6.0_Ds64. There is also a newer Wireless_16.7.0_Ds64 that is out as well.
I looked up dissassembly instructions online for my Dell XPS 17 Laptop (L1702X). I took apart my case and removed my Wireless card, which had two wires connected but three available (one was wrapped and not used). It replaced an Intel 6230N. I then put in the new card and used the previous screw to screw it in. The antenna wires were popped back on the same sides. I then put my laptop back together which was hard since I had to remove the keyboard and several small screws from throughout the system.
I then booted the laptop and installed the bluetooth drivers and network drivers again. I then connected to my wireless network using the new card.
Troubleshooting: I was only connecting at 54Mbps at first and I was having connection issues. Here is how I fixed it...
For those with wireless-n and wireless-ac routers you may have to troubleshoot your windows settings if you have "upgraded" your card. In the control panel, go to the Device manager, go to network section, and double-click on the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. Now clicked on Advance. Under Ad-hoc choose WMM Enabled, under HT mode choose VHT, under preferred band choose 5.2ghz, under transmit power choose 5 highest, and under wireless mode choose 6: 802.11 a/b/g. Press okay to save changes.
Inside your router go to the QOS section (in my netgear router it can be found in advanced>Setup>QOS Setup). Make sure WMM is enabled. Save changes.
Another thought is to use a program like DNS Bench to find the best DNS server for you. I added my provider's DNS to the generated list and it turned out that Charter's DNS (one of the two provided) was the fastest and a level 3 dns server was second fastest for me. I added both as static dns server's to my router.
I love this wireless card. You'll have to ignore the Windows 7 bug that claims you are connecting to a Wireless N network and the driver bug that states you only connect to a/b/g networks. The one device bug right now is that your router needs WMM enabled. This does not make sense since my wireless AC usb adapters such as the Edimax AC adapter, did not have this problem. Overall the Intel 7260 connects faster than the Edimax EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-Band USB Adapter, Mini Size Easy to Carry, Supports Both 11AC ( 5GHz Band ) and 11n ( 2.4GHz Band ) Wi-Fi Connectivity, Upgrades your PC / Laptop for Exceeding Streaming and Faster Download. It actually is twice as fast since its 866.7 Mbps compared to 430Mbps , not to mention it fits inside my laptop so I can't break it. Overall if you don't mind opening your laptop this is a great deal for Wireless AC router owners!

UPDATE: Installation of 2nd card in a new Dell 17R:: Drivers did NOT auto-load, (NP,Just copied them to a flash from XPS15). This is because 17R only had Dell OEM drivers onboard.
To Avoid No Drivers(win7/8): Download most recent drivers from Intel BEFORE swapping out card!
Installed in Dell XPS15 L502x that had an Intel 6230 dual band wireless N adapter.
No problem with Win 7 Pro auto drivers, installed and functioned at max 867 mbps speed immediately!!
Connected to an Asus AC66U(ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router)-> Moto SB6121( ARRIS / Motorola SB6121 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem - Retail Packaging).
Web pages just pop up, streaming data moves at the max speeds of my provided cable service connection! Love it! (See my Asus AC66u review for full router configuration)
Total install time to fully functional: 7 minutes - includes walking out to kitchen to get screwdriver!
Note: Startup was without Bluetooth services enabled!
I don't use Bluetooth on anything because its a huge security hole, hardware mips & pagefault hog, and generally useless for anything other than phone handsfree. I disable it on my devices to reduce overhead on the box and adapters. For best results disable hardware, services, and startup items.

Restarted the computer and everything just.....worked.
I know there are a lot of issues with finding the right card for Sony Laptops and wanted to provide this information to let it be known that this is a tested and validated good card for the system mentioned above.
You're going to want to install the "driver" only version of the software first (for ours its the 16.6.0. Ds64). After it loads up and recognizes your card, do the standard reset to apply and then after reboot install the Bluetooth Software (BT_3.1.1311_sXX) for your OS bit. You'll also have to figure out if you've got to go back to your default manufacturer's Ethernet Port drivers or find a Eth driver that'll work without interfering with this card's drivers and software. If you don't do the driver software only first, this card will be a SOB to install and you'll be doing a lot of WTF's.
Wife's computer is actually being bottlenecked (not sure what on yet) but card is pulling a flat 300MBps on the 5Ghz band and 5 bars of signal anywhere in the house (even through several walls, 1200 Sq Ft home). Our router/access point is capable of 450Mbps on both bands.
After getting through the hair pulling driver issues, card works great and it'll at least get you ready for AC connections when they become available.
