Newer Wireless Card install/f1.b bios update

dvt6-6c00
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I would like to install a newer wireless card to take advantage of AC wireless speeds, so I'm looking for an update or mod to my f1.b bios for my Dv6t-6c00 due to the white list.

 

I've tried using the HP website to check for updates for my computer, but the automated process fails everytime.

 

I'd like to mention donovan6000(http://donovan6000.blogspot.com/2013/12/modded-bios-repository.html) created quite a few Modded Bios, but everytime I run the included InsydeFlash application it tells me, while trying to install both the original f.1b bios & f.1b modded bios, that they are not for my notebook.

 

My Dv6t-6c00 Bios information

System Board ID - 17FA

Bios Version - F.1b

Bios Vendor - Insyde

 

I havent seen an update to this subject for a long time, and any help/tips is greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately you got a whitelisted model and there is no AC or dual band wifi for it. Also it doesn't have Win10 Driver support as I have the same model as yours.

-------- Looking for HP driver support When Windows 10 O/S isn't Supported ------
Windows 10 drivers may be available through Windows Update

Click 'Learn More' below for steps on using Windows Update to determine what drivers might be available for your product. Please be aware that HP does not guarantee Windows 10 drivers will be available from Windows Update.

BTW, Millions of folks have gone back from Win10 to their prior O/S -- something you don't hear about from MS. by WAWood but ALL to TRUE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Those that want HD Gaming should plan to invest in a Gaming Laptop to handle those requirements. Eamples GTA V or Crysis 3.

Newer Wireless Card install/f1.b bios update

I found a solution that worked perfect.

 

I upgraded my bios F.1b to a modded F.02 and was able to install a $26 wireless card(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PDLCFL8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00) that gives me a wireless speed of 866.7Mbps

 

Here is where I found the solution

Here is a direct link to donovan6000's bios downloads
