Re: Connecting to 5G

HP Recommended

Hi! Can I upgrade my Broadcom 43225 802.11b/g/n adapter with L17365-005?

My Notebook is an HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC (P/N: WG608EA#B1A)

You cannot for two reasons:


1.  Your notebook's model series has a BIOS whitelist which prevents a person from installing any other wifi adapter except the one the notebook came with.


2.  The  L17365-005 is a M.2 form factor wifi card, and the Broadcom 43225 is a HMC form factor card, so the slot and antenna connectors are much different.
