Just I wonder ? Is there a whitelist on this computer ?

Yeah sorry...did not disappear until Intel Core 4th gen models and yours is Intel Core 3rd gen.

The one in bold looks like it would be good but this is an error in the Manual. That part number is actually a Ralink card I do not recommend.

Probably the only time I have ever disagreed with Huffer, as is evidenced by this post below...
There are others who have successfully upgraded the wireless cards in the dv6-7xxx, dv7-7xxx-models if you want to search further.

@Paul_Tikkanen says there is not one. I still think there is, but the only way to know for sure is to try an off-list wireless card in it and see if you can boot up. If you have the whitelist there is no way to remove it.
