    Question Fedora 30 not connecting to 5Ghz AC Wireless on Intel 7260 (rev 9b)

    Hi everyone.
    I just upgraded to new Intel 7260 (rev 9b) WiFi adapter for my laptop, and as i didn't get any AC connection via fedora 29 i upgraded to fedora 30.
    so during USB live boot i could see both my SSID_2G and SSID_5G (yes i renamed them) via "Network Manager",after reboot and get into my new installed F30, i just see my 2.4GHz network.
    i ran “iwlist wlp7s0 freq” and there is a 5Ghz network there but "Network Manager" does not report any AC network!!
    Code:
    [ErixPloit@F30~]$ iwlist wlp7s0 freq
    wlp7s0    18 channels in total; available frequencies :
              Channel 01 : 2.412 GHz
              Channel 02 : 2.417 GHz
              Channel 03 : 2.422 GHz
              Channel 04 : 2.427 GHz
              Channel 05 : 2.432 GHz
              Channel 06 : 2.437 GHz
              Channel 07 : 2.442 GHz
              Channel 08 : 2.447 GHz
              Channel 09 : 2.452 GHz
              Channel 10 : 2.457 GHz
              Channel 11 : 2.462 GHz
              Channel 12 : 2.467 GHz
              Channel 13 : 2.472 GHz
              Channel 149 : 5.745 GHz
              Channel 153 : 5.765 GHz
              Channel 157 : 5.785 GHz
              Channel 161 : 5.805 GHz
              Channel 165 : 5.825 GHz
              Current Frequency:2.447 GHz (Channel 8)
    as i checked forums noticed AC 5Ghz is not the strong suit of Linux and everyone having their own issue via their own distributions, Does anyone have a same issue with fedora and somehow got to fixed it? I would appreciate if you share your solutions.

    also I'm facing minor disconnections over Bluetooth which is anther issue for another Topic maybe but still related to Intel 7260 AC adapter!

    Thanks in advance

    Solution:
    as i checked my router channel list:
    Code:
    Channel Information                     
    ----------------------------------------
    Channel 36	A Band
    Channel 40	A Band
    Channel 44	A Band
    Channel 48	A Band
    Channel 52	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 56	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 60	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 64	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 100	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 104	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 108	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 112	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 116	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 132	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 136	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    Channel 140	A Band, RADAR Sensitive, Passive
    comparing to older post i noticed they are not in the same coutry code, so changing the country code fixed the issue:
    Code:
    sudo iw reg get
