Solved!

Installing built in Bluetooth

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion G6-2213ea
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Apologies if this has been asked before. I have an old Pavilion G6-2213ea laptop that didn't come with built in Bluetooth and I've been getting on alright with USB adapters but I'm at a point where I'm having to swap out accessories now to plug them in. A scour on the internet keeps mentioning dongles but I was wondering, is it possible to install a new wireless card with Bluetooth and if so, where do I get them from. 

 

I'm competent enough to fit it myself but it's acquiring the part I need that seems to be the difficulty, so any recommendations for suppliers will be greatly appreciated and whether replacing the wireless card is the right way to go.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi:

 

If you can find this model wifi card on eBay UK, it will work in your notebook...

 

Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter  HP part # 730668-001.

 

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

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

You're very welcome.

 

The above card will also allow you to connect to the 5.0 GHz wifi  band where you should enjoy faster wifi speeds.
