Intel Centrino 7260, its AC, 5GHZ capable, and has bluetooth. It's also under 25 CAD. I just bought one for 28 CAD including shipping and taxes for my laptop.Intel Centrino 7260, its AC, 5GHZ capable, and has bluetooth. It's also under 25 CAD.

Be sure you buy the right Card for the right Connecter.

I don't know, what network card is currently in your laptop? You can also open it up and check, that's what I did.

That doesn't tell us but your laptop will 99% use a PCI Mini adapter, which the 7260 uses, so yes, it will be fine.

Is your 5GHz bandwidth signal appearing? If not this is a driver issue related to either Windows 10 and or your adapter. I was having the issue last night where my PC could not detect my routers 5GHz signal, so here's what I did to fix it.

 

Step 1: Device Manager

Step 2: Network Adapters (Select your laptops wireless network adapter)

Step 3: Right-click and selected "Update driver software"

Step 4: Select "Browse my computer for driver software"

Step 4: Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"

 

A list will appear with drivers for your laptops wireless adapter. Now go through the list and install the drivers until you find one that detects your 5GHz signal, in my case it was the third option Network adapter Ralink.

 

Good luck I hope this helps.

None of the options? You mean when you click the network icon in the bottom-right of your desktop and open up available networks, there is no 5ghz bandwidth displayed? Those adapter drivers will not be categorized into 2.4/5ghz drivers, one driver contains all you need to be able to detect both frequencies.
