Pavillion dv7 4280us & Push2tv

I have a Pavilion DV7  4280us with a Broadcom 43224AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n Wi-fi adapter. In spite of being assured by tech support that netgear's Push2tv would work with this notebook, apparently my hardware doesn't support it. After about 4 hours with tech support they told me it couldn't be done.  This was after the tech crashed the computer, requiring that I do a safe start and system restore. So much for outsourcing tech support. Apparently in order to have push2tv you need intel wireless display. Intel wireless display requires an Intel wi-fi adapter. The laptop seems to have all the other requirements. Is there a supported intel wifi card for this model that will allow me to install intel wireless display and use the Push2TV that I purchased after being told it would work?

Hi,

There is a compatible Intel 1000 WifiLink 802.11bgn adapter, part number: 593530-001. However, it's not a dual band device so the max speed is up to 150mbps..

Re: Pavillion dv7 4280us & Push2tv

Great, what is the downside to the swap, and, what other changes would be required ? Also, when I look up the part # it's listed as a 300mbps device. Am I missing something, I'm not very literate when it comes to computers.

 

Thanks

The Intel adapter is compatible so no other changes are necessary. I have checked the specs for the card and it says up to 150mbps. Go to Intel websites and have a look on the specs..
