Annoying whitelist wifi card for ProBook 4525s (Bios version sp76186 bios F.62 of 27-5-16)

HP Recommended
ProBook 4525s
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

anybody knows or have the actual list of the wifi cards allowed for the ProBook 4525s

(Bios version sp76186 bios F.62 of 27-5-16)?

I would like to upgrade the laptop with a dual channel wifi (2.4GHz and 5GHz) + bluetooth.

I bought a wifi card Atheros AR5B22 and it is not recognised by the bios but it nicely works in the Asus, in the Toshiba and in the Acer laptop that I've got.

Which dual band + bluetooth mini pcie wireless card is supported?

Thanks

@FraR 

 

Machine is 9 or 10 years old, the chance to upgrade internal wifi card to newer cards is none. The list is on page 4 of the following manual

 

             http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02791389.pdf

 

No wifi ac cared on the list. I bought the following adapter for my 11 years old machine:

 

          https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Networking/Adapters/67965-USB-AC53-NANO

 

And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) as the 1G wired on same machine, same my network bundle.

 

Regards.

Thank you for your useful answer.

The problem  is not the 10 year old laptop but it's this annoying whitelist in the Bios.

I'm upgrading laptops (Acer, Asus, Toshiba) that are as old (if not older) than the ProBook with no problems and using the PCI-E I mentioned in my first message
