    Im wanting to upgrade my current Wireless card AR9287 with an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260. Im pretty sure the form factor is the same, correct me if I'm wrong, my main question is if the current antennas that are being used for 2.4GHz only can be used for the 2.4 and 5GHz frequency. Thank you for your time.

    Because 5Ghz is almost 2 x 2.4, the antenna length "should" not be a problem. But there is more to good propagation than antenna length. Antenna type, gain, and orientation play a major roll in reception quality too.

    That said, I would contact your notebook maker and see what they recommend.
