Is there a dual band wifi card for HP Pavilion g4-2235dx

Pavilion g4-223d dx
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Ok so i have a shot in the dark question, I am not sure on what parts are avalable for this laptop. I just picked this up on a trade and so far has been a pretty decent little machine. It has stock 2.4ghz wifi, which i know is pretty standard. My question is, is there a different internal wifi card i can replace the stock on with that will give me access to both 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz.

 

I have been considering going the usb adapter route for both wifi bands but would like to keep some usb ports avalable without needing to get a small hub.

 

Any info would be Appreciated!

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

Unfortunately the 3 supported wireless cards listed in chapter 3 are all single band cards.

 

Back when your notebook was produced, HP had a BIOS whitelist which prevents any other wlan card from working other than the ones listed in the service manual.

Yes, it was a long shot.

 

Now, if you want to roll the dice, and bet $5.01, you can try this card, but the odds are way against it working.

Your notebook was made right on the cusp around when the BIOS whitelists were removed.

 

No one knows for sure exactly when this happened or exactly what model series had the whitelists removed.
