Solved!

What wireless network adapters will work in a Pavilion 23?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23-b010 AIO
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

My Pavilion 23 AIO locks up when I connect to WIFI. It works fine when connected via Ethernet cable. I assume that the WLAN card needs replacement.   Which WiFi WLAN Half Mini PCI-E Card will work in a Pavilion 23-b010 AIO, I see there are many available.

@Andyinhilo, welcome to the forum.

 

Have you tried updating the driver for the wireless card?  This may solve your problem: Device Manager/Network adapters/right click on your adapter/Update driver/Search automatically for updated driver software.  If there is an updated driver it will be found and installed.

 

If this doesn't work, here is a card that should work for you.  It is dual band (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) which means if you want to up your wireless performance you can use the 5G band.  You will need a router that supports 5 G, however.  I have had this card in a HP desktop and HP laptop.  It works great!

Been there, done that with the driver update. Froze right afterwards. I connected an old 802.11.b/g usb wireless adapter and and it works fine if a bit slow. I will look at your suggestion for the intel card. Does it come with software?

Thank you for the additional information, @Andyinhilo.

 

The only software that is necessary is the driver for the card.
