Pavilion G6-2288ca compatible wifi cards

G6-2288ca laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

 Can someone show me where to get  a list of compatible wifi cards for my G6-2288. The current Ralink  RT3290 has been giving me some trouble lately.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi:

 

See the Maintenance and Service Guide on your notebook's support page for the supported wireless cards, chapter 3, page 24.

It looks like you would need to replace the current card with one of the same, because that is the best card offered for that model.  It is the only one offered with bluetooth.

Thanks Paul, for the speedy reply.

 

 My only concern with the replacing the card with the same model is the lack of windows 10 drivers available.  Even when it was working properly, I was experiencing occasional issues with the computer not recognizing the card  once I upgraded to Windows 10.

Wireless (WLAN) module:

● Atheros HB125 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi Adapter (select models only) 675794-001

● Ralink RT3290LE 802.11 b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter 690020-001

● Ralink RT5390R 802.11 b/g/n 1×1 WiFi (select models only) 691415-001

That is the right module even though the amazon.com ad mentions a different laptop. It has to be one of the above as your laptop has the "whitelist". The Atheros is the best pure wifi card but as @Paul_Tikkanen points out; no bluetooth if you need that.

You're very welcome.

 

Did you try the W10 wireless driver for the Ralink card your notebook has?

 

I don't know if it will help or not.  I think the hardware revision of the wlan card you have is too old to work correctly with W10. The same can be said for any of the supported cards listed in the service manual.

 

This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek (Ralink) wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

There is also a W10 BT driver as well...

 

This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.
