Wireless N Card for Presario C700 series laptop

[ Edited ]

I have a Presario Model C751NR Laptop,

S/N [text removed for privacy]

P/N KC590UA#ABA

I would like to upgrade it from Wireless Lan, 802.11G to Wireless Lan, 802.11N.

I would like to do this by changing the existing, (AR5007) Mini PCI wireless lan card.

Could you tell me what Wireless Lan 802.11 N was available for the C700 series Laptops.

I see the drivers are available on the support page.

Thanking you in advance for any help you may offer.

Re: Wireless N Card for Presario C700 series laptop

Note that the specific wireless cards in HP systems have specific bios implemented support. Using any 3rd party or non-hp cards (or even hp cards that is not qualified for that model) would cause the system to not  boot.

 

You would get a boot error saying something like "unsupported wireless network device detected. System halted. remove device and restart"

 

According to Partsurfer (http://partsurfer.hp.com) there is no wireless N card available for your model so I would not reccommend doing this (if you still want to try - make sure you can return the part and get your money back)
