According to Intel ARK:
7260AN = 802.11n  dual-band  (supports 802.11a/b/g/n)
7260AC = 802.11ac dual-band  (supports 802.11ac, 802.11a/b/g/n)

Be warned that none of these cards are capable of AP mode.  They will work
as STAs (i.e. connect to an access point) just fine, of course.  But they
cannot behave as an AP (access point).
