HP Recommended
Probook 4730s
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have laptop with Wifi card atheros AR9285, but I have some problems with wi-fi. So, I decided to change it, but I can't choose: Ralink wifi card(I don't even know its name) or Inten Centrino 6230, which is better? If you advice me to change wifi to something else, I can't do that, I tried. BIOS even don't see that wifi card

Yes it has a BIOS whitelist for wireless. That means only one of the cards originally sold with the laptop will work. See p. 58-62 here:

Bottom of p. 58:

 

Realtek 8188BC8 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0+HS Combo Adapter  602993-001

 

Or:

 

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230  636672-001

 

These are all somewhat obsolete but these two would be the best of what is there.
