Solved!

WiFi Card Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion g7-1314nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I am in the process of upgrading my laptop memory and cpu. I’m considering an upgrade to the WiFi card. Are there any compatible cards that would provide dual band WiFi and Bluetooth? I would prefer to avoid additional USB dongles if at all possible. 

 

Any help or advice you all may be able to provide would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, your notebook's model series has a BIOS whitelist which prevents any other internal wifi card from working other than the one that came with your notebook.

 

The BIOS whitelists were not removed until the g7-2200 model series was released to market.

 

They actually make a small size USB combination dual band wifi and bluetooth adapter.

Thank you so much for you help! I was afraid of that but the low profile option is definitely worth me looking into. 

Thanks again!

You're very welcome.

 

I didn't know those devices existed until a few weeks ago.

 

I always thought you had to buy a separate USB wifi adapter and a separate USB bluetooth adapter.

 

That frees up a USB port.
