Bluetooth Upgrade in Pavilion DV6

HP Recommended
Pavilion DV6-1050es
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, this question is a continuation of this topic (specifically a comment by UBoMW), which unfortunately has been locked and does not allow more posts.

 

I have a Pavilion DV6-1050es (p/n NG671EA ABE) that I'd like to add bluetooth to.  The documentation for bluetooth upgrades is really unclear so after searching for months I'm reaching out to the community.  Thanks so much for any help you can give!

 

The Service & Maintenance guide (c10758220) states that the parts needed are:

- Bluetooth module (483113-001)

- Bluetooth cable (489822-001)

But a search for the module results in either a wifi card or a bluetooth module, which are not the same part.  HP partsurfer shows a photo of a bluetooth module, but all web searches come up with a wifi card.  The photo of the part listed as 483113-001 on this website (zoom in for a clearer photo than the one on HP parts surfer) looks like it has part number 397922-002, which I've read is part # of the bluetooth module by itself.  Is this the correct part number of the BT module (not including wifi card) or perhaps a module interchangeable with 483113-001?

 

My wifi card is 487330-002 (Broadcom 4322 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN module (Bluetooth Supported)), its name makes it look like it works in conjunction with a separate bluetooth module.  This topic suggests that many different BT modules will be allowed by the system (specifically Blueooth 4.0, the recommended module is 655792-001), but I tried bluetooth module 412766-002 (just because it came with the BT cable specified for my laptop) and after connecting it, it wasn't recognised in Windows.

 

So my 3 questions are:

1.  Is the official bluetooth module I should use # 483113-001 or # 397922-002?  If the first one, why does that part number bring up a wifi card in the searches?

2.  For my Wifi card (487330-002) can I just add the correct bluetooth 2.0 module for it to work?  Does this Wifi card support a bluetooth module as a connect-and-go item?

3.  If I put in a bluetooth 4.0 card, will it be blocked by the whitelist?  If there's no whitelist, how can I identify one that would work with my wifi card?

 

A final comment on the BT module cable for anyone reading this who can find the right BT module but with a different cable: this cable can be any one of many HP BT cables which is over 6cm long since the motherboard connection is about that distance from the module.  I can't guarantee the connector will be the same as on your motherboard, but all the cables I've seen for laptops of the same era had the same connector.

 

This laptop is fast enough to stay useful for many more years (after upgrading to an SSD and T9600 CPU).  BT is all I need to keep this laptop working great 🙂
