WiFi Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion G7-1117cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to upgrade my current wifi card  to a faster one maybe with bluetooth support, possibly the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230.  Don't know if this laptop is whitelisted and if that is even possible.

Model: Pavilion G7-1117cl 

OS: Windows 10 Pro x64

Serial: [personal info removed.]

Current wifi card:  Realtek RTL8188CE  

Thanks for your help!

Your machine was built long way before 2015 therefore it is whitelisted for sure. It has AMD processor therefore you can use the list on page 6 of the following Guide

 

            http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02834058.pdf.pdf

 

The series also supports Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 but ONLY for Intel processor machine. Option: You can use USB adapter, few examples
