Wireless Card

HP Recommended
Hp P6754y
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good Day

I have a desktop Hp P6754y and need to replace/upgrade the internal wireless card.  My motherboard is N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX9(Alvorix) and the Processer is AMD Athion ll X4 640.  The present card is a 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n PCI-E Mini.  The Hp pin is 588551-001.  I have been in touch with Intel and AMD and both say I have to contact Hp to find what card works with my platform.  I seriously thought Intel could cross reference a compatible card or AMD would know being that it's their system.  Therefore does anyone have a clue of what will work?  I would prefer to stay with an internal card.  Thank you in advance, Vick.

Hi:

 

It depends on if your PC has a BIOS whitelist or not, and I don't think it does.

 

I say that because this person installed a different wlan card in their PC, which was slightly newer than yours.

But it also looks like your PC only has one antenna connected to the current Ralink wireless card in there now.

 

Is that correct?

 

If so, then there really isn't a better internal card you can upgrade to, that would work with only one antenna.

 

If it has two antennas...On notebook PC's Intel cards will not work on platforms with amd hardware, so I suggested this alternative for this other forum member.

You're very welcome.

 

You will have to stay where you are at, only if your PC has one antenna connected to the wireless card, and the only way you are going to know that, would be to open it up and take a look inside.

 

If it has two antennas connected to the wireless card, then you should be able to replace it with a Broadcom dual band wireless card...dual band N or AC.
