Many have reported issues with not being able to use Bluetooth after they install this wireless card. I would first check to make sure the latest Bluetooth driver and Wireless driver installed. This can be confusing but you need 2 separate drivers for the card to work properly: 1 for Bluetooth and 1 for Wireless.
1. Go to http://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=Intel+7260 and choose your operating system
2. Select the latest driver that has "Bluetooth" in the title and download it
3. Locate the latest driver (software application) that has "Wireless Software and Drivers" in the title
4. Click on the title to view the available downloads
5. Download the one that is only the drivers (i.e. Wireless_17.14.0_Ds64.exe)
Here are the steps I took to replace the card in my Toshiba Satellite P755-S5120:
1. Remove all Bluetooth and Wireless adapters plus the software
- Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Network Adapters
- Right click and choose 'Uninstall' and check the box to remove related software
- Remove any remaining software through Control Panel --> Programs and Features
2. Shut down computer and remove battery
3. Remove 2 screws just below battery compartment (next to RAM slots)
4. Remove keyboard with slim piece of plastic (guitar pick) by inserting it under the top part of the keyboard (wireless card under it)
5. Gently disconnect both antennas from current card (take note of how they are connected)
6. Remove screw holding card in place
7. Pull out old card and insert the new card
8. Put screw back in to hold card in place
9. Re-attach antennas to new card
10. Re-assemble keyboard, insert 2 screws on back casing and insert battery
11. Connect Ethernet cable to laptop (for Internet)
12. Turn laptop on and install drivers
- Install Bluetooth drivers first
- Install Wireless drivers second
13. Reboot laptop after drivers are installed
14. Turn on Wifi and connect to the 5Ghz band (if available) on your router
If Windows doesn't recognize the Bluetooth part of the card even after installing the drivers, there is a solution. My wireless was working great but never saw Bluetooth appear in my Device Manager. This seems to be common with those installing this card. I found a work-a-round to get it to work properly. Some may call it a hack but it works nonetheless. This forum post has the information you may need: https://communities.intel.com/thread/31247?start=45&tstart=0. If you have this model of Toshiba laptop, you will more than likely need to perform this step. It is easy to do and it works like a charm! Only do this if Windows never recognizes Bluetooth.
This should get everything up and running. If you are noticing slowness or your connection dropping, take a look at this document: http://www.msi.com/pic/faq/10015790@2014-1114-0153-309200@faq_0000000001178_en.pdf or http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/sb/CS-030709.htm?wapkw=wifi+recommended+settings. The newest Intel drivers set all of this for you so you shouldn't have to tweak anything except for the preferred band, which you will want to set to 5Ghz if you have dual band.
Good luck and enjoy the speed of the AC 7260!

I bought this AC7260 card and installed it as follows: I downloaded the driver from Intel (using the network cable) and then shut down the system. I removed the bottom of the laptop (1 screw) and swapped out the network card - 1 more screw and a couple of tiny coax connectors for the antennae. A pair of cheap magnifying glasses are really useful here! (Look up "magnifying glasses" in Amazon). Powered up, ran the .exe file from Intel and voila! WiFi is back plus Bluetooth as well! Sweet!
Only minor issue is that you won't get a maximum Intel-rated speed on 5 Ghz band even if you have a good AP or Wi-Fi router capable of Gigabit over Wi-Fi, but that's not a big deal for me, especially considering the current price for this adapter.
