Hi:

 

You should be able to upgrade to this dual band wifi card with bluetooth...

 

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

 

You should be able to find this model card on eBay or Ali express.  Search by the HP part number.

 

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

Thanks for the answer!

How do you know that this particular model will fit? Is this information in the documentation somewhere? Or is it your personal experience?

You're very welcome.

 

Other forum members have reported that card works in the g6-2200 and g6-2300 model series.

 

It will definitely fit since it is a HMC form factor card just like the RT3290 is.

Thanks a lot for your time!

I'm not worried about the form factor, but the software limitations.

I will write when I receive and install the "new" adapter)

Thanks! Installed the adapter without any problems.

Everything works without additional settings and driver installation. Now my old man sees networks at 5GHz!
