ELITEDESK 800 G2 TOWER WI-FI CARD UPGRADE

HP Recommended
HP EliteDesk 800 G2 i5-6600 Tower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Godd afternoon.

I'd like to upgrade my computer with a wi-fi card. I installed a TP-Link 150Mbps PCI Express (https://www.tp-link.com/es/home-networking/adapter/tl-wn781nd/) but the computer didn't started. It happened the same to another computer, an EliteDesk 800 G2 i5-6500 SFF.

I'd like to know what wirless card can i use in this computer.

Thank you.

You're very welcome.

 

If your PCIe express slots are enabled in the security menu (they should be by default), unfortunately I have no idea why the card isn't being recognized by the PC.

Hi:

 

If the PCI express cards aren't working, I recommend you just use a USB dual band AC wifi adapter.

 

Any PCIe x1 card should have worked.

 

Below is the link to the quickspecs for your PC.

 

I use this one in several of my HP business desktops and they even work in my Dell PC.

You can probably find one of these on eBay, which is where I bought mine from.

Hello.

I thought that it colud have something to do with de BIOS setup, but I haven't found any option that solves the problem. The card works because I have used it on an older PC.

I'm using a USB adapter but the connection is less stable than using a PCI card.

I appreciate the suggestion on the card but I'm looking for a not so expensive option..

I'll keep on searching  the origin of the problem.

Thank you!

Yes. I'm afraid it's a matter of an unknown  compatibility between the mainboard and the wifi adapter.

Thank you very much.
