I have a Probook 650 G1 with latest BIOS. Is there a whitelist of Wlan?

HP Recommended
Probook 650 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have a Probook 650 G1 with latest BIOS below (8-May,2020  ver 01.50 Rev.A)

https://support.hp.com/hk-zh/drivers/selfservice/hp-probook-650-g1-notebook-pc/5405400

 

The original wifi card is too slow and I would like to replace it with a AC wifi (mini pcie)

Is there a whitelist of Wlan card to this model? I find someone said HP removes the whitelist limit to notebook after 2015.

 

Kindly ask if the latest BIOS in 650 G1 has also removed the whitelist of WLAN card or not.

Thanks for your help

Hi:

 

There is no whitelist in your notebook, and you can install this model wifi card...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

You should be able to find the card on Amazon or eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

Below is the link to the service manual...

Thanks Paul. So it means I can install any type of wifi card as long as it is mini pci-e type.

Am I correct?

I found some 7260AC card is very cheap on chinese website (US $3 dollar). But they have no SPS code on it.

Is that my 650G1 support these cards? (Since what you have said there is no whitelist limit to 650G1)

You're very welcome.

 

I know the card with the sps number I posted will work.

 

The card you had most likely will also work, but I can't 100% guarantee it.

Thank you! I would like to share this with you. Lastly, I got one 7260ac from china website. And 650G1 works with the new card perfectly! But I thought I was stupid because this machine (650G1) has m.2 slot and I should go a step further to wifi 6 (ax).

 

I think if there is no whitelist to the mini-pcie (7260ac) , there should no whitelist to m.2 wlan.

Correct me if I am wrong

You're very welcome.

 

That is correct, but the M.2 slot your notebook has is for a SATA M.2 SSD only, not a wifi card.
