i hope that i am in the right part of the forum for my question.

I have an ASUS K93SM laptop.

Due to my upgrading of my internet connection and missing bluetooth, I bought the AC7260 from Intell.
Please find here which one I mean: CLICK HERE

Problem when mounted this adapter: No way you can switch on the MAIN WIFI SWITCH.
Please see HERE the image of what I mean (images say more then my english...)

What is not a problem: you can install the adapter in windows 8.1. It is recognized by windows. I can install updates for the adapter. Turn the adapter on and off.
But as long as the main wifi switch does not work, I cant use wifi.

I heard that there is a way to get the AC7260 working by "modding Bios".
It is concerning the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth PCIe Half Mini Card.

I guess it means that the BIOS file will be adjusted and then the wifi adapter will work?

Can anybody please help me with this?
I have really no clue or knowledge to do this. I dont even want to try, otherwise I know that I will make things worse..... Blush

I have also made a donation to show my appreciation for helping me, because this is the honoust way I think.
Without this forum no help, so thats why i donated.

These are the details of my laptop:

If possible, and there is a chance to modify my BIOS in a way which gives me the options to use more memory or make my laptop faster, please feel free to do so.

I will have no trouble to send a donation to the forum if somebody can help me.

Thanks in advance!

This is somewhat a specialist subject. The people in this other forum have way more experience than we do: ... st-Removal
