The card can see the AP in scans but for some reason ssid is ALWAYS hidden despite settings.
The card can connect to the AP but just hangs on 'authenticating'. I have tried disabling all encryption and it hangs on 'getting ip address'. The system is set-up to just bridge the wireless and wired connection. I already have a good router.[/code]


Card i am using.
Code:
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev bb)
   Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
   Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 50
   Memory at b3400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
   Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
   Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
   Capabilities: [40] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
   Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting

It was wicd causing the problem, not my card or the AP
