Hello, my laptop wifi signal began to fluctuate, even 1m away from router, the signal strength is on the one-point. So I decided to buy a new wifi card intel 7260.
But after installing new card and its drivers, LED indication on the key F12 remains orange, unresponsive and i cannot turn it on. Can anyone help?
I updated the bios and do the windows update, and using the latest drivers from Intel.
Thanks in advance

You can't use an Intel wireless card in a computer with AMD hardware. That is why it doesn't work. And there is nothing you can do to make it work.
Plus your notebook has to have 2 wireless antennas or you can't upgrade the wireless card at all unless you take the whole notebook apart including the display panel to add a second antenna.
If your notebook has two antennas, and if you want a dual band wireless N card, you need to get a Broadcom one.

You're very welcome.
The Broadcom wireless card I suggested will work fine (if your notebook has two antennas).
I had one in my HP 350 G1 (Intel processor).
I did remove it and installed the 7260 so that I could have Intel Wireless Display.
With the 4th generation Intel core processor and Intel HD graphics, the card worked fine and so does WiDi.
