I have found the wireless networking card (Ralink RT5390) in my Pavillion G6 (D8N88EA) to be faulty as it no longer shows up in device manager. Reseating the card does nothing to help so I have decided a replacement is required.
Could someone kindly provide a list of compatible cards? Or, even better, a link to a compatible replacement?

Since your notebook has an Intel processor, you should be able to replace the Ralink wifi card with this one...
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0 HP Part # 710661-001
The cards is readily available on eBay or Amazon.
Search by the HP part number, not by the model number of the wireless card.
Here is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

Thank for providing me with that information and the official part number. May I just ask, I assume that I can pick any of the Intel cards under that part number? Some are 7260 HMW and some have AC after it, I take it this doesn't matter as it's the same part but different model numbers?
