Network card replacement

Hello.

 

My Husband Wi-fi module Ralink RT 3290 had died, and unfortunately it's unavailable for purchase. Could anyone help me, which module would be compatible?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi:

 

I can't find any specs on your model.

 

Does it have an Intel core processor or AMD processor.

 

Please let me know the model of the processor.

 

It makes a difference regarding the model wifi card you can install.

Hi:

 

Your notebook should have two antenna wires connected to the Ralink wifi card.

 

You may as well upgrade to this model wifi adapter....

 

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 in used but tested and working condition on eBay.

 

Some sellers in China sell them new.

 

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...
