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

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

Hello, I currently have a wireless WRT54G router in my home. I have a laptop wirelessly connected, one computer wired, and three more wirelessly connected, all with G adapters ATM. So that is a total of 5 computers wireless and one wired.

I was thinking about as a Christmas present for myself upgrading to the new N networking. However, I would keep all the G adapters, except for one, which I would put into the laptop. Do you think I would see an increase in speed in the N laptop?

Also, I am using Comcast High Speed Internet. Do you think I should get the Dual-Band N Wireless Router, or the Ultra RangePlus Wireless N Router? I am not sure how the 5 gig band works, or what it is exactly, but I thought it would be nice to have for the future? IDK? Also what about the 310N router? Just a thought. Thanks!

You would want to get the driver files on the hard drive (like maybe the desktop) and have them available before you make the swap to be sure the card will work once you reboot Windows.

Hey guys and girls. First post in the forum here I'm about to upgrade some parts on my Pav G6 1344sa, namely replace the HDD with a SSD and replace the DVD drive with the HDD, replace the tired keyboard for a new one and upgrade the wifi card for a 5G dual band so i can untilize the speed of my newly installed fibre broadband. After a bit of research i have read there maybe issues getting the Intel AC 7260 card i just ordered to work in this notebook. Can anyone confirm if it will work? I read that some users have used a tweak of covering pin 20 and/or pin 51 with tape to make it compatible, anyone tried this or can explain how this works? Cheers

A:Intel AC 7260 Dual band wi-fi card compatibility

No it will not work and the covering of the pins is actually a Lenovo trick that I have never seen anybody recommend for an HP. I would think it will not work since the problem is a whitelist. The card has to prove to the BIOS what it is, not hide what it is from the BIOS so stopping the identification data from being read will just cause the wifi card to be rejected by the BIOS. As stated, there is a BIOS whitelist and only the specific HP branded wifi cards originally offered with the laptop will pass and allow the system to boot past BIOS. If you want that list just post back.

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, I have a HP 250 G3 laptop and I'd like to upgrade the N wifi card on it to a Dual AC wifi card. There are quite a few options available  on Amazon but I don't know which one to pick up. Vendors and Users have conflicting ideas. Where can I get sound information about the right AC wifi card? Thanks for your time, Aaron

A:What is the right AC Dual Wifi card for HP 250 G3 laptop?

Your notebook has a 1x1 antenna. It would have to have a 2x2 antenna setup to use 802.11ac. Unfortunately, That means that an  802.11ac wifi adapter won't broadcast or receive any signal broadcast by an SSID using 802.11ac protocol.  I suggest  that you save your money and purchase a notebook that already has the capability of using an 802.11ac adapter. This is the list of optionally installed adapters that could be in your notebook now.

A:Upgrade Wifi card

USB dongles generally come with a little mini-driver disk but they usually use a common chipset like Broadcom or Atheros for which Windows will likely just provide the driver and it will be plug and play

Hello All,  I bought my laptop ( HP 15 AC026TX in india) last year July. It came with Broadcom BCM43142 1x1BGN wlan card with 1 antenna. I want to upgrade my card to an Intel card as I mostly use Linux OS and Broadcom drivers has issues in Linux. But I've been reading about Bios Whitelisting. So, please let me know if my model of laptop has Whitelisting or not ?   If not, Can I buy a generic intel wireless-n card and use in my laptop? or should it be hp ceritified intel card?   Thanks & Regards

We are experiencing wifi interference between our probook and Netgear AC791 Jet Pack in some RV parks where we stay. The jetpack can use 5 ghz as can all our other devices, our probook can't. The jetpack can transmit on both, but is much slower on dual band than on either 2.4 or 5 ghz. so, how much effort and is it possible to upgrade the wifi in our probook to 5 ghz? Thanks for any direction you can provide.

A:Is it possible to upgrade my wifi card

GrumpyOldTimer Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Sorry, but with laptops, the WiFi is integrated into the system board with a chipset. This is not a customer-replaceable part.

A:Wifi Card Upgrade

Hi, From the first manual of the following link:      http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-g6-Notebook-PC-series/5145704/model/5172313/manuals Your machine was built in year 2011. The chance to upgrade to 5GHz wireless card is very slim to none. There is a list of wifi cards supported on page 5, none of them is dual band. You can use:           http://www.netgear.com.au/home/products/networking/wifi-adapters/a6200.aspx?cid=gwmng or         http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/technology/networking/wireless-usb-adapters Regards.
