WiFi is a wonderful thing. You can take your laptop anywhere in your house and access the Internet, or access your network from the garden. However, it does introduce the grim possibility of somebody else doing exactly the same, without you ever knowing. This guide seeks to make you aware of various security terms and ideas associated with wireless networking and what you should consider when setting up a wireless network.

Home Networking
Date Issued: 26th Oct 2006

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

Intel 8260.NGW Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Adapter, M.2 PCIe 2230, a/b/g/n/ac, 2x2 AC Terminals, BT4.2, No vPro is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from a Intel 3160 I purchased this to replace the Intel AC 3160 that came with my ASRock X99 Taichi, the 3160 is a 1x1 WiFi card and could not hold a consistent transfer, it would frequently dip to 5Mb/s or lower when transferring files or downloading a game, the AC 8260 solves this completely, transfers no longer dip and it can sustain a transfer speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I got myself a 3XS Laptop and paid extra for the Killer NIC network adapter, had a million issues with it, it's software and figured it was just wifi being wifi. After it caused the 20th blue screen of death I swapped it with one of these Intel network adapters and my laptop has never been so good to work on. Seriously these network adapters are amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great expansion of my ultrabook's signal I bought this for a Dell XPS 13 which was having issues connecting to our home wifi - signal would drop rapidly if more than 2 rooms away from where the router lived. Installing this new card made a massive improvement. I now get full signal even on the 2nd floor (the router is on the ground floor). Network transfer rates are much improved too, which means I can now stream HD media. Great value and brilliant piece of kit.

Questions & Answers

Is this a 2230 sized unit with an E Key

Will it be suitable for the M2 slot on the back I/O Panel of a ROG Crosshair VI Hero. And will if so will it run with the Intel l211 Gigabit ethernet onboard controller
Asked by: silverninja54
Hello, This is a 2230 sized unit with E-Key, looks like it would fit in the m.2 slot on the Rog Crosshair VI also. It will have separate drivers than the onboard controller so will work together. Regards,
