HP DV6-3121nr - Intel Centrino N1000 replacement

HP Recommended
HP DV6-3121nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an old (but still working good) DV6-3121nr that recently had its Wifi presenting errors.

After one of the last Win10 updates it just got an Yellow Yield and stopped working.

Seems to be some kind of incompatibility introduced into last updates (as Laptop had Win10 working fine from launch up until last update).

After researching it seems that MS made it incompatible with Win10 and as Intel had no drivers for it (it was issued by MS) I had to move to an USB adaptor.

Question I would have is, is there any Wifi card that I can buy and replace the Centrino and avoid using the USB dongle? (I saw some mentions on a POST compatibility that would not allow any card to be used).

Welcome to HP Community


I have gone through your Post and would like to help


Are you able to go online with a Wired Ethernet connection?


If Yes, I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link:


HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook


  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.


Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available


You can refer to page 4 in the Service Guide: for a list of compatible WLan Card


Keep me posted how it goes


Thank you and have a wonderful day 😊
