Hi Team,

 

Please  share the information on the supported WIFI card for " HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC (2136tx)".

 

As the current WIFI card - Broadcom is showing link speed of - link speed (Receive/Transmit) 144/72 Mbps  and getting speed only of 45-48Mps.

 

Also confirm if there is Whitelist for this model as well?

I tried  below WIFI card , but it was not working as expected - it was showing manual configuration mode  that automatic and it was hardly getting enabled and speed was reduced to 48-49 Mbps.  ( Having 300Mbps connection internet) and  speed of the card however in system settings was showing  link speed (Receive/Transmit) 144/144 Mbps capability.

Hi, Vivek:

 

No one can say for sure if your notebook has a BIOS whitelist or not.

 

HP didn't release that information.

 

I know the g6-2200 and 2300's don't have a whitelist because others have upgraded the wifi cards in those models.

 

You can try the dual band Broadcom card and see if it works...

 

Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth4.0 Adapter   HP part # 730668-001

 

300 MBPS max throughput on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with a dual band N or AC router.

 

You should be able to find the card on eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

Broadcom also has a dual band AC model of the card.  It is usually more expensive though.

 

Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combo   HP part # 724935-001

 

867 MBPS max throughput on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router.

You're very welcome.

 

You can experiment with this alternative...You should be able to find it on eBay.  There are Chinese sellers that ship to India.

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

If you don't get an unsupported wifi adapter message from the BIOS, but the card doesn't show up in the device manager, or shows up but doesn't work, you may have to mask some contacts.

 

Watch this video...
