    Which internal wifi works best with Galago UltraPro?

    I'm looking at buying a Galago UltraPro, but I've seen a few problems reported with the wifi module. I'd like to avoid that if I can.
    Apparently Ubuntu 13.10 might have fixed the driver problems? I plan to put Linux Mint 16 on it, if that matters.

    There are two wifi options available:
    • Intel Centrino 2230 - 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN + Bluetooth Combo Module
    • Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Wireless LAN + Bluetooth


    System76 is currently offering a free upgrade to the second option.
    But I care a lot more about it actually working than getting wireless AC speeds

    Does anyone have experience with a recent & updated Galago UltraPro on wifi?
    How well did it work, and which model did you choose?

    Thanks everyone!

    I have the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235. Never had problems.

    Problems are almost always caused by A. faulty wireless hardware (wireless card, router, etc.) or B. incompatibility issues between the router and the wireless card. There isn't one card that's more reliable than the other, and as a whole, they're both pretty stable.
