I have an old HP Pavilion G Series laptop that has two different network cards that work sometimes.

 I have an old HP Pavilion G Series laptop that has two different network cards that work some of the time online.

 and I and I cannot find driver's for them and I am running it on Windows 10.

My question is should I buy another network card to match either one of these so that there is no confusion?

There are many different G6 machines and they do not use same wifi card. It is too old, probably we can't find its specs and duw to the whitelist the change to have newer card is none. Please try USB wifi adapter. There are many around, my story:


Early March 2020, for testing, I bought the following wifi card for my 11 years old machine




Unfortunately my machine uses different format, not M.2, physically won't fit therefore I went to the shop and swap to the following one (I did not have to pay more, they are same price):


And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) with the 1G wired on same machine.


Now my machine uses old and new adapters at the same time.By default it uses the faster adapter.
