Pavilion g7-2251dx wireless upgrade 5GHZ?

[ Edited ]

I have a HP Pavilion g7-2251dx Notebook PC with an Atheros AR9485 g/g/n WiFi adapter.

This adapter only supports 2.4GHZ, is there a replacement/upgrade which will support 5GHz WiFi?

Hi RebTech60,


Welcome to the HPCommunity, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.


I see that you are looking for an alternate WiFi adapter then your Atheros adapter. According the manual all three recommended wireless cards only support 2.4GHz. If you are looking for more information on removing your wireless card, you can find that on page 43 of the Maintenance and Service Guide.
