HP Pavillion DV6 2190us Wi-Fi Card Whitelist

HP Recommended
Pavilion DV6 2190us
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to buy Intel 7260ac wireless card but seller said some HP laptops has a BIOS whitelist. Does my laptop has a whitelist? What are whitelisted cards? Any BIOS update without whitelist?

Hi:

 

The only wifi card that will work in your model is the one in there now.

 

A whitelist is a restriction in the BIOS that only permits certain wifi cards to work.

 

If you want to upgrade to a dual band AC wifi adapter, you will need to purchase a USB one.

It doesn't matter what BIOS version your notebook has.

 

The whitelist stays on all BIOS versions.
