Does anyone know of a dual band WLAN module that works with a United States hp Pavilion g6 (g6-1b59wm) laptop? I've searched the forums and found a little background info, but was never really able to come to a conclusion on my question. I loooked over the hp Pavilion G6 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide (http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02829479) and it appears to list two compatible dual band WLAN modules: 1.) Atheros AR9285 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi adapter - hp Spare Part # 580101-0012.) Realtek 8188BC8 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0+HS Combo Adapter - hp Spare Part # 602993-001 However, when I search the hp parts website for those two part numbers, they both show up as single band WLAN modules. I know there's a BIOS whitelist for my particular hp laptop that only allows hp approved WLAN modules to be used with the laptop. I know I could go the route of getting a USB dual band capable wifi adapter, but I'd prefer to keep the USB ports on my laptop freed up I'm getting the feeling that there aren't any dual band WLAN modules available for my hp laptop. Any help or clarification would be greatly appreciated.

A:hp Pavilion g6 Dual Band WLAN Module Availability

Hi: Looking at the service manual for your notebook I see a few mistakes... The Atheros and Realtek cards are definitely mislabeled in the manual as dual band (a/b/g/n) cards. They are only single band cards. But the Intel WiFi Link 5100 should be a dual band card, so i think that is mislabled and should be an a/b/g/n card. http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/wifi-link-5100-brief.pdf Unfortunately, the Intel Wifi Link 5100 wlan card will not work in your particular model because it has AMD hardware. The Intel cards will only work in notebooks with an Intel processor and chipset. So, as I see it, you cannot install an internal dual band wlan card in your notebook because of the BIOS whitelist.

Hello,
I have brand new Dell Inspiron 11 3158 2-in-1 .So far loving it.But I hate that I've got the 1x1:1 802.11n adapter, which tops out at 150Mbps and 2.4Ghz only. I want 5Ghz, preferably 802.11ac. Single stream or dual stream if possible.
Any recommendation what card will supported on my Inspiron? Where I can order it? Do Dell offer the modules directly for upgrade?
Current card is Dell Wireless 1810 with new M.2/NGFF Connection (not mini PCI-ex socket), which use mediocre realtek chipset inside.
and, by upgrading this part, do I lose my warranty?
Currently living in Indonesia.

Thankyou before.

Hi all,

I looked online and I'm still a bit confused whether I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchase. Can someone explain to offer a suggestion as to which one is best?

Thank you in advance.
 

A:dual band wifi card vs single band wifi card

I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchaseClick to expand...

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?

what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously

the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be

if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term

some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz

A:Replacement of Laptop WiFi Module

Here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 51 for "how-to" on removing the wireless card. Your model does not have a "whitelist" problem but there is perhaps another equally troubling issue. There possibly is only one antenna attached to the module and available. If that is the case, your options are terribly limited and there is no way to tell if there is 1 or 2 antenna leads without opening it up and looking.  You definitely need to get rid of that Ralink adapter. It is not a good piece of hardware even if working and if it has failed it is actually a good opportunity to install something good.  This is the best card for you, but requires 2 antennae: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-7260-HMWG-R-Wireless-AC-Bluetooth-Mounting/dp/B00MY9S692/ref=sr_1_1?ie=... Post back if you need any more help. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:Wifi and Bluetooth module for Pavilion G6

Need exact model and the big question is whether it is in the "whitelist" era. Generally anything with a 4th gen Intel Core or newer is past the whitelist and you can install any wireless or wifi-bluetooth card of the same form factor as long as you have at least 2 antennae which I believe the G6 models do.

A:RAM Memory Module Upgrade

Pretty sure you'll be good with 240 pin DDR2 modules. Best to install in pairs, so keep that in mind. While newegg isn't guaranteed to give you the best price, they've always been reliable wherever I am in the world when it comes to shipping.

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Memory,Desktop Memory,240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM

Those are the modules for your board sorted by rating. I personally have Mushkin brand in my tower, but I'm not partial to any brand. Check out the reviews. Maybe someone else here has the same mobo as you and can offer some first hand experience on what you should get. Good luck.

Also for future reference

http://www.crucial.com/

You can go there and find the proper ram size/timings and then use that info to do a search on newegg or your favorite shopping site.

According to them here's the ram you need (http://www.crucial.com/store/listpar...AREA-51%207500)

Package: 240-pin DIMM

I have a Dell Inspiron 5521 Laptop having 4 GB RAM. I am planning to add additional 8GB RAM.
So, the Total RAM would be 4+8= 12 GB.

I found the following information in Dell Specifications User Guide:

Memory
Connectors:
Inspiron 5521 Two internally-accessible DDR3 SODIMM connectors
Inspiron 5537 Two internally-accessible DDR3L SODIMM connectors
Capacity Up to 16 GB
Type:
Inspiron 5521 Dual channel DDR3
Inspiron 5537 Dual channel DDR3L
Speed Up to 1600 MHz
Configurations supported 2 GB, 4 GB, 6 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB

I found the following Memory Module information by running Command on my Laptop: 
Total Width: 64 bits

Data Width: 64 bits

Size: 4096 MB

Form Factor: SODIMM

Set: None

Locator: JDIMM2

Bank Locator: Not Specified

Type: DDR3

Type Detail: Synchronous

Speed: 1600 MHz



Question 1: Is it possible to add 4+8= 12GB configuration in this Laptop?
Question 2: Should i use DDR3 instead of DDR3L RAM in this Laptop?
Question 3: Which RAM is best supported with this Laptop, Kingston or CORSAIR Vengeance?

Note: I am using Ubuntu on this Machine.

A:Dell Inspiron 5521 | RAM Upgrade | Memory Module

1. Yes, albeit at a performance penalty.  It's designed for a pair of matched modules.
2.  Either will work by itself.  Don't mix DDR3 and DDR3L though -- if you have DDR3, use that; if L, use that if you're adding a module.
3.  Crucial is hard to beat particularly given its compatibility guarantee when purchased through its memory configurator.  Anything else- ask the vendor about compatibility guarantees (or be sure you understand the possible restocking charge if a return is required).

I would like to know if this model is compatible with the following card:http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Ralink-RT3090BC4-802-11b-g-n-WiFi-N-BT-Bluetooth-PCI-e-Card-SPS-602992-00... If not, then what kind of dual band + bluetooth card CAN I get? Also, is my system eligible for Win 10 upgrade? It says upgrade now or later but I have friends with the upgrade making their system freeze, corrupt recovery partitions and refuse to restore. Any help I would LOVE! Oh! Also, How would one partition part of their HDD to be used as RAM and is that even a good idea? I'm learning.

OK, this is my first time being a part of or using a tech related forum so here it goes:

I'm trying to help save a neighbor some money by fixing their wireless network.

WNDR3700 Dual band Netgear router.

2.4ghz wireless b/g/n with enabled SSID broadcast, channel=auto, mode set to 130Mbps
WPA-TKIP + WPA2-AES. wireless isolation is not enabled.

5Ghz wireless a/n enabled SSID broadcast, channel = 44, Mode is up to 300Mbps
No security encription. (i know...bad, but the lady has lots of kids and family members coming
and going from the house so she doesn't want one encripted). Video network enabled

Both Radio frequencies are enabled, fragment and CTS/RTS set to max

WPS settings = keep existing.

IPv6 not enabled, No repeating is enabled, No guest networks are enabled(however ssid broadcast is enabled for guest profile 1)
The problem, and reason for fixing the problem is that the 2.4 Ghz band light on the router is ON however the SSID is not being seen by any client in the house. the netgear interface says it is on and working. the neighbor needs the 2.4ghz band to work because the printer is wireless and will only recognize 2.4Ghz SSIDs. Also they have older nintendo DS clients they would like to use on the network.

During the day the 5 Ghz band works with very seldom (1-2) disconnects while the 2.4 Ghz band wont be visible to any device. in the evening both bands will come online, and very often will every computer get disconnected from either, the 5Ghz band wi... Read more

Hi there!

So about 2 months ago, I purchased the AC53 when I moved in to a house share.
We have Virgin Media SuperHub that does both 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
When I installed it, it worked fine and connected excellently to the 5G band, a few days ago however the 5G connection disappeared off my list and now it always connects me to the 2.4ghz band.

Tried resetting my SuperHub and re-installing the drivers and software utility for the AC53 but alas it doesn't show. My phone however can find and connect to the 5G band.

I'm a bit confused as where to go from here!

Any help would be much appreciated!
 

A:ASUS USB-AC53 Dual Band - Can't detect 5Ghz band

After re-installing you can't connect at all or just only connect to 2.4?

Can you run ipconfig /all and post back the results.
Click Start, in the search box type cmd, under programs right click on cmd and select "Run as Administrator".
In the command prompt window type ipconfig /all and press enter.
Next right click within the command prompt and select "Select All" press enter.
Paste the results back in this thread.

N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400.

I am trying to get a signal out in my garage at the opposite end of my router location. I am getting 1 bar and "poor" signal. I downloaded inSSIDer to analyse my signal and I notice that my "Wireless Network (5GHz a/n)" is not broadcasting anything. The checkbox for "Enable SSID Broadcast" is checked.

I have very limited knowledge of this stuff but it seems to me that if it is a dual band that I should be seeing 2 different signals, right?

All I see is this: Wireless Network (2.4GHz b/g/n)

I have attached screenshot of my settings

Can someone help me out with this? Thanks, Joe

My Billion BiPAC 7800VDOX Dual Band Wireless VoIP ADSL2+ Router has two bands:  2.4GHz and 5GHz.  and is wirelessly connected to my laptop OMEN by HP Laptop PC  17-w007tx.  It always shows as connected via 5GHz band only.  My laptop also shows 5GHz band only in the list of available networks;  2.4GH does not show up in the list of available networks.  It is not so in my other laptop which is also connected to the same router and that laptop shows both the bands in the list of available networks.  Thus, I can choose to connect to any of the two bands as per my choice. I have tested the router and it is working perfectly; there is nothing wrong with it.I wonder what can possibly be wrong in my OMEN laptop that it does not show both the bands which it should. At times, when I click to open the list of available networks, 2.4GHz may appear momentarily only and then disappears; thus I can not choose it for connection. I would appreciate any help to resolve this issue so that my OMEN laptop shows both the bands in the list of available networks so as to choose either one for connection.

Hello, I just got my E560 on 9/27/16. It has windows 7, 64 pro installed. I plugged in the battery and waited an hour or so before turning the system on. Everything booted ok and I entered my hidden router for my wifi. Unfortuanly, it would not connect. I finally dug out an old ethernet cable to hook up and test the system and download some software. I then unhid my router and still was not able to find it. Everyones router in the neigborhood showed up but mine. I call tech support but they claimed that it was my routers software. I have 4 other devices working just fine on the wifi and I even set my printer up for wifi while the router was hidden with no problem. I checked the Lenovo site for updates but the system said everything was up to date. I went to the Intel site and downloaded their current driver for this card. The laptop finally noticed the router while it was unhidden and I again hid the router and rebooted my Laptop. This cured the problem. However, I was displeased with Customer service they tried to tell me it was a problem with my router and not the system and all my drivers shipped from the factory were up to date. I hope this will help anyone who has a similar problem.

Hi peeps, merry xmas to you all ;p

I just installed 2 strips of DDR2, the exact make my Asus MB requires as the old ram that was in it was different speeds.

Originally it had 1.5gig so i repleced the 2 strips for 2x1gig strips of matcjing everything.

So switched PC on and now windows tells me i onlyhave 1 gig installed !

Cpuz tells me both are there and tells me the exact info that is required but windows only tells me i have 1 gig now when it said i had 1.5gig with miass matched ram ??

Puter seems smoother so my question is, :-

Is W7 32bit using 2gig or is it not ?

Why cant thing just work lol lol lol also on the ram it states it is PC2-4200 DDR2 Memory RAM DDR2-533 533MHz but if you check the cpuz file it states different .

Dont know what to do now. is the ram faulty ? miss labeld ? or what ?

Thanks for any ideas.

Here is the cpuz file.
 

A:Win 7 can't see one module of RAM

Ok hold the horses lol I took the slots out and swapped them round and proper made sure they were in, so now W7 tells me i have 2gig yey but cpuz still telss me they are PC2-5300 (333 MHz) and not PC2-4200 (533MHz) as the label says on the moduels.

Is Cpuz right or are the stick right ? i bought these off ebay from a reputable dealer so if there is an issue i need to resolve it cos if i paid for 533MHz and i only got 333MHz then i need a refund os some sort dont i ?

Thanks again.

I was trying to upgrade my Gateway SOLO 1450 from by adding a 512 MB chip to the already existing 128 MB. I called Gateway and also went through the crucial.com memory chip selector to make sure I got the right one.

I purchased a KINGMAX 512MB PC133 chip from newegg. When I put the chip in along with the 128 chip. It starts to boot and then I get the following blue screen of death message:

STOP C0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file): \systemroot\system32\sonfig\DEFAULT or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable. Beginning dump of physical memory.
Physical memory dump: (countup) Contact your system admin or technical support group for further assistance.

If I take the upgrade ship out then the computer boots fine with the message that it recovered from a serious error:

BCCode : 1000007e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : 80608809 BCP3 : F8A45A08
BCP4 : F8A45708 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0-0 Product : 768-1

I haver tried swapping the memory around and the same thing happens. I have tried booting with only the 512 memory and I dont even see a boot screen. When both modules are in the BIOS reads Slot1: 128MB Slot2: 512MB.

I have also tried to upgrade video drivers and repairing windows from a boot disk. When I tried to repair the drive, a message said the the C: drive was corrupt and unrepairable.

I was wondering if I just have a bad module or is it some other problem?? If it is a bad module, would the BIOS be able to read that it ... Read more

A:Is my RAM module bad?!?

I'm leaning toward a bad module, your spec say it can take 1024mb of ram in two slots, so i have to think a 512 stick is ok, if you tried the 512 stick alone in both slots and still no joy I would send it back for a refund.
