Either one of these models should work...
Dual band N: Max 300 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.
Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter HP part # 730668-001
Dual band AC: Max 867 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.
Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combo HP part # 724935-001
You should be able to find the above 2 wifi cards on eBay. Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

Sorry that the Broadcom card didn't work.
I have heard of anyone that has run into that issue before with the Broadcom wifi card.
The only suggestion I can offer would be to see if you can mask Pin 20 on the card to get the wifi to work.
Watch this video...it is for the Intel card, but maybe it will work for the Broadcom card too...
You might also need to mask PIn 51 to get the Bluetooth to work.
