Solved!

Can I run an Intel Ac 7260 WIFI card in place of an Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 WIFI card

Hello, I have a Pavillion G7-2269wm. I was going to see if i could upgrade the WIFI card. Has anyone replaced/upgraded the Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 WIFI card? Maybe with an Intel AC726?

Thank you.

Hi:

 

Since your notebook has an AMD processor, an Intel card won't work.

 

While I can't guarantee it will work, perhaps you can try the equivalent Broadcom AC card. 

 

It has the same throughput specs as the Intel one.

 

Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combo   HP part # 724935-001.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

You should be able to find them for sale on eBay.
