Hi: You can get one of the wireless cards listed in the service manual for your notebook, and it must have the HP part number on it or it won't work. See chapter 3, page 29. http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03758231-1.pdf The only dual band card I see listed would be the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 HP Part #670292-001

Hello, I am looking to replace the wireless modem (631956-005) currently in my HP Folio 13-2000?  I researched a few threads but not getting a complete answer.  Some say the Intel 7260 802.11ac - 7260HMW will work.  Has anyone attempted this upgrade?  I would like a dual band option... the 2.4Ghz band is okay, but I have a dual band modem and would like to take advantage of the larger bandwidth options.  Looking for any insight and feedback.  Thanks!

I have a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC with a dead Ralink RT5390R 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter. For  short time the adapter would stop working, I'd uninstall then re-install and it would be OK. Now it's just dead.I've searched for a replacement I can buy, but these adapters seem to be obsolete.I'm not sure if there's a new model of adapter that's compatible with my PC. I can't find anything on-line to say so and I don't want to buy one unless I'm sure. Does anyone know of a compatible adapter?Otherwise I guess my best and maybe cheaper option is a USB wifi adapter.

Hi: What is the full model number or product number of your notebook? The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number. The only wlan cards you can install are the ones listed in the service manual for your specific model notebook, and they must have the HP part number on them or they will not work, due to the BIOS whitelist your notebook has. A BIOS whitelist prevents the notebook from booting up if an unsupported wlan card is installed. I buy used but tested and working wlan cards on eBay by querying by the HP part number. Then I only buy a card where the actual photograph shows the HP part number on the white sticker that indicates 'Replace with HP Spare..."

Hi there I'm having problems with a Windows 8 Pavilion g6 laptop with the Ralink RT5390R wireless card.

I cannot connect to my Virgin Media Super Hub 2. I get the error message, The network security key isn't correct when it is infact correct.

I've attempted to change the setting on router, when I remove all security from it I can then connect but otherwise I can't always. Sometimes I can connect but only after mulitple resets of both the router and my Laptop, however this solution is only temporary and I then get the same error message, even after telling it to connect automatically.

I've had a look at the network card, it is fitted correctly and the wires are connected properly. I've uninstalled the card and the drivers and then reinstalled, it will then work for a short while however I'll then put my computer to sleep or shut it down and then I can't connect when I turn it back on.

Driver version: , I can't see any updates to this and so believe it is up to date.

Security for wifi is WPA2-PSK (AES), I'm attempting to connect to the 2.4GHz band.

I've shut down the 5GHz and there was no difference.

I've attempted a static IP, didn't work.

I've changed the channel, didn't work.

Disabled firewall on router and laptop, didn't work.

A few days ago I turned on my computer to find it was not connecting to my home wireless network. It then went to the Blue Screen of Death with an explanation I was able to link to issues with the wireless adapter. I was able to find a driver update on the HP site that said it was fixing the error and after downloading and installing it connectivity returned and worked fine for the rest of the evening. However, every time I turn the computer off and then on it reverts to the same problem and is now also adjusting the brightness of the screen to a darker setting for no apparent reason. I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 with Windows 7. I see a lot of posts with similar issues but I cannot figure out if this is something that I can fix or if the wireless card is shot. Any help would be much appreciated.

Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 I have had continous failures of my wireless card.  I will be working normally and all of a sudden I have no connection to wifi.  A browser will show mo internet connection.  All other devices on my network have no problems.  I cannot connect to a differnt network or even try to disconnect and reconnect.  The ony fix (for a few days) is to reboot the notebook.  However in rebooting I get a systems stop failure and Windows saves a crashdump file.   The Error shown is _Driver_Power_State_Failure Searching the Microsoft site the error is stated to be caused by bad drivers.  I have no idea how to get updated drivers, MS doesn't have them and HP doesn't seem to either.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

My niece hasn't had wifi on this HP Pavilion 15-n034ca Notebook Running windows 10 for quite some time. I told her I would look at it and see what's up. What a job this has been. Almost every post points to the Ralink RT3290 card and that it is a piece of junk and HP doesn't seem to want to help it's customers when it's out of warranty. I hoped I could rely on some of you good people who know their stuff to help me out. The canadian price for this adapter on amazon.ca is over $200. which is way out of whack. She would be better off putting that money towards getting a new notebook. Was wondering if I could get a different replacement card that would be compatible with this HP so that all will work well when installed. I will look around to find the driver for it after I purchase one. Thanks in advance for your attention and hopefully your help. Rob

I purchased a used laptop, HP G42, and the wifi was working fine, however in the last day or so, it stopped connecting to the internet. I have decided that the adapter died and needed to be replaced. In my naivity, I "assumed" (maybe a bad idea) that I could just throw another one in from my spare box of parts. NO? Really? I get a message that the wifi adapter isn't supported by the bios? Am I to believe that this is a "proprietary" wifi lan card? I'm hoping not, but am not feeling the HP love here.

Can someone explain in layman's terms how a dual band wireless router works? I've spent months reading various articles and websites, and I still just don't get it. I read on one site (can't remember which) that dual band routers require special wireless adapters, but I've never seen a dual band wireless adapter, so I doubt the validity of that. Is a dual band wireless router good for splitting video streaming from regular web surfing?

If someone knows of a good website that offers a clear and accurate explanation, please post a link. Don't post links from random Google searches. I've read most of them. If they helped, I wouldn't be posting here.

Hi all -
I have a couple of questions if someone has some time to help.

I just purchased a new wireless router (Belkin N600) and it has dual bands 2.4 & 5.

It has the option to name each band's SSID differently. I currently have them set to the same name.

Here are my questions:
1. If the components in my house are set to pick up and log into the SSID by default, will they automatically connect to whichever on is faster or less busy, or will they just log into one?

2. Should I be naming the SSID's differently and specifying which components connect to each one?

Does it make a difference?
For reference, here's what's accessing the router:
2 TiVo's
1 Logitech Revue
1 PS3
2 Laptops
2 Tablets

Thoughts? Am I overthinking this? If everything is working fine now, should I just leave it, or can I improve performance somehow?


A:Dual Band Router Question

Surely some of those devices only have 'a' or only have b,g or n adapters, so will only connect to the corresponding network. I have no experience with dual band adapters so I don't know what options you have with those. If I did have dual bands I would probably be naming the networks differently and would tell each device to which network I wanted to connect.

Hello all!

About a year and a half ago I purchased a beast of a router to expand my internet capabilities (or something like that). When I got the thing it worked amazing! I had 0 issues with it for the longest time. But now things are a bit different.

Router: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016EWKQAQ/ref=oh_aui...

About 4-6 months ago I moved from my previous house-(located in a subdivision within town) to a new "trailer home" located quite a ways out from town. I moved in and setup my router with no issue! It worked like a charm. Fast forward about 6 months later; the darn thing won't work! I called my ISP's and they said it's because the router is a dual band router and will not work with their services. But the thing is it was working for such a long time with no issues! I still would love to use this nice router out here but if there is nothing I can do I guess I must invest in a mediocre router.

The problem I'm having is the WAN light is lit a pink color. If I unplug the cord from modem it turns a deep RED.
Please if anyone can help, it would be much obliged. 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!

I got a new d-link wireless N router the other day which solved most of my slow internet problems. It is a dual band router and supports 5ghz but my current network card is only 2.4ghz. I'm in an apartment complex so I figure if I run it on the 5ghz band I will get much less interference from other people's wifi. Only problem is I cant really find a dual band pci card??? The only one i've found is a Linksys WMP600N. I was hoping there were some more options out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

A:Looking for a wireless N dual band PCI card.

Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual-Band WMP600N

Sorry, but like you this is the only one that I could find with a PCI interface. They are a reputable manufacturer though.

Hello, this is my first post and I was hoping someone can help me... I looked on my router and seen that is supports a 5 Ghz connection, but my computer can't find it in the listed networks. I look into it a little bit and find out that my Wi-Fi Adapter does not support it. I was wondering if anyone knew any adapters that would fit my laptop, because I know some computers have different slots for them kind of things or whatever lol. I looked everywhere and I have no clue on how to figure out if there is a dual band adapter that would fit my pc.. :/ The adapter is Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter Thanks!!

It seems like and od question, but those anybody knows if I can connect and USB Hub to the USB port on this router and use lets say a printer and a external HDD at the same time to share on the network. Also I don't have the unit at the moment just planning to get one.
Thanks for the replies.

A:D-Link Extreme N Dual Band

Check the manual on the D Link site, and I think you'll find that they recommend against using a USB hub. I believe the USB port is meant for a single device.

I have a low-end HP 15.6 Notebook 15-F272WM (64-bit) with a Realtek RTL 8188EE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter and I would like to upgrade to a dual band to take advantage of my 5ghz wi-fi. Would an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 802.11ac, Dual Band, 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 be a good choice? If not, what should I use? Thanks!

I have just bought a D-Link DWA-160 A2 network adapter and it is really slow.
I have been using a D-Link DWA-125 N 150 A2 for a while now and it is faster, getting a higher signal.

My new network adapter is suppose to be faster.
The only thing I can think of is that the software coming with the adapter never installed. I get an error: Wireless adapter not found! Please insert the adapter now.
Thing is, the driver is installed and I can surf the internet.

I did some speedtest net tests and I see that my DWA-125 A2 is faster. How can this be possible?

Thank you!

Hi: You can't use an Intel wireless card in a computer with AMD hardware.  That is why it doesn't work.  And there is nothing you can do to make it work. Plus your notebook has to have 2 wireless antennas or you can't upgrade the wireless card at all unless you take the whole notebook apart including the display panel to add a second antenna. If your notebook has two antennas, and if you want a dual band wireless N card, you need to get a Broadcom one. Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 22 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter --  HP Part # 730668-001

I am needing to replace the Realtek wireless card that came in these systems with an Intel Wireless card that will support dual band.  Is there a place I can find what I can install in the following models Lenovo L530Lenovo L540

A:Dual Band wireless for L Series

Good day.
For the L530: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/l530_fru_list_20130819b.xlsx.pdf
For the L540: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/l540_fru_bom_20140807.pdf
In both cases, you should be able to use the FRU P/Ns to determine your options.
Hope this helps.

HII have an HP envy bought in 2016. Just found out that it doesnt have a dual band adapter duet to which I am having issues at several places where I need to connect to wifi. How can I get this resolved, my machine is still under warranty . Secondly almost everytime I come into my home or office network my laptop fails to detect the wifi and I have to restart the machine to get online. This is very inconvenient. Can anyone suggest a way out. Has any of you with the same machine noticed that its a bit slow, even after being the configuration that it is. My old laptop boots and performs much faster.  Cheers

I was thinking of picking up a dual band router during the coming Black Friday sale, but really don't know which to buy or how much I really need to spend.

Right now I'm using a D-Link 655 running on a 25Mpbs connection. I game once in a while, but my main concern is streaming HD video from my main PC to my upstairs PC for my parents. I may also cut Cable at a future date and use the internet for all my TV programing.

I have look at two router so far, a higher end D-Link DIR-880L with up to 600Mbps (2.4GHz) + 1300Mbps (5GHz) speeds and a D-Link DIR-826L with 300Mbps (2.4GHz) + 300Mbps (5GHz).

Is there any benefit of getting a router with a higher transmission rate? since my connection is only 25Mbps or am I just paying extra for a whole bunch of nothing?

I am open to any brand of router, so please suggest ones you had good experiences with. I just looked at the D-Link cause the DIR-655 worked very well.


A:Help choosing a dual band router

Don't think you'll get any better internet speeds because even 802.11g is at least twice the speed of your internet connection ( 54Mbps) and 802.11n up to 600 Mbps. So, you know, "The weakest link in a chain" saying ? and "Speed of a convoy is the speed of slowest ship". 5GHz range of frequencies is also more sensitive to interference by walls and other obstructions.

I have a Linksys WRT600N router connected to my XP computer, and a Linksys WMP600N PCI adapter in my Windows 7 computer, and both are enabled with Dual-Band. I can connect to my 2.4GHz and my 5GHz connections just fine on my Windows 7 computer. My question is, can I connect to both at the same time to speed up my connection, and how?

A:Simultaneous Dual-Band operation

I dont believe you can connect to both at the same time. Your computer should just connect to the best available connection. Why do you ask, are you not getting good connection speed from the wrt600n or just curious.

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
