HP/Compaq :: Wireless Card And Bluetooth Upgrade

Jul 10, 2009

I have a question concerning self-upgrading of the wireless card and bluetooth.

Long story short, I have a Lenovo T61 that has bluetooth and the Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card. However, both the inverter and graphics card (nVidia quadro 140M) have failed. I have determined it is best to buy a new laptop.

I am planning to either buy a HP Pavilion dv6t or dv4t. However, I would like to know if it is possible to forgo getting bluetooth and the wireless-n card when I order this laptop and install these components myself as I already have them from my Lenovo T61. My Lenovo T61 is just going to collect dust, and I am willing to take it apart for the individual parts.

Is it worth the work? I believe I will not have problems taking apart the HP Pavilion and the Lenovo T61 as I am aware of the websites that show you how to take apart these models. But will the HP Pavilion motherboard support the wireless-n card and bluetooth if I originally did not order such components? Will the warranty be affected?

Additional information: I shall be buying the HP Pavilion from Costco.

HP/Compaq :: HP V6305nr Wireless Card Failure

Nov 24, 2009

way to test the wireless card in the laptop, seems to be dead. The laptop is almost 3 years old and is no longer under warranty.

This model of laptop (in general) had a lot of issues due to the faulty Geforce go 6150 GPU, and I guess that the excessive heat generated by it has taken it's toll.

HP/Compaq :: My Wireless Card Is Half-dead

Jan 28, 2010

My WLAN 802.11g connection died yesterday when I was at the university and even after uninstalling and updating the drivers it's not waking up.

I have a D-Link DWA-140 USB adapter which work quite well still with 802.11n (though there are some trouble to get a connection when first starting up the laptop) but the "g" part of the wireless card seems completely dead.

I have looked at the bottom of the laptop and got a clue where the WLAN card could be because of the symbols, but I need to know what card I should get to replace the faulty one? Because I have to replace it right?

My Hp laptop is:
HP Pavilion dv5-1264eo Entertainment Notebook PC (NG169EA)
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
Product Specifications: LINK

HP/Compaq :: Is The Intel Wireless 5100 (AGN?) Card Removable Or

Nov 10, 2009

The DV5T seemed to be working pretty well for me and no real wireless issues.

What has happened is that since I upgraded to Windows 7 and the new drivers, I get some hitching, rubberbanding in games, slow speeds at times, etc.

Now I know Windows 7 is pretty rock solid and the new drivers came from the HP site.

But when I started googling, seems TONS of people have issues with the 5100 card and maybe I was just lucky before.

At first I noticed my card speed goes from ~50 MBPS to max of 130 MBPS. After reading, it seems even though my router supports 40ghz dual channel yadda yadda, the card only goes to 2.4 so it can't really run at 40ghz is my understanding and that 130 MBPS is pretty much the cap.

That said, it was that way before the Win 7 upgrade so that shouldn't change anything.

One thing I noticed is that in my device driver before the upgrade, it was a normal 5100 but now with the drivers, I see a 5100 AGN.

I can't find how the AGN and non-AGN versions differ?

Could it be I have AGN drivers for a non-AGN card?

Lastly, is this wireless card removable and upgradable or can I use the slot (empty) that I have for another card and disable the wireless 5100 through BIOS?

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Card That Will Work With My Laptop Beside Atheros

Jan 23, 2009

I have been having problem with Atheros ar5009 on dv5 for the last two weeks. I did clean install and it didnt help. I tried almost everything on the web to solve the problem but no luck.

I am thinking of replacing it with different wireless card. I don't know what is compatible with my system. I have amd turion x2 2.1 ghz. the wireless uses pci-e slot. can anyone recommend me a wireless card that will work with my laptop beside atheros?

Model is dv5-1113us

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 C551nrReplacing Wireless Mini-pcie Card With SSD

May 25, 2009

I'm thinking about picking up a usb wireless n adapter; which means I won't be needing the internal wireless nic. Since that's a mini PCIe slot, I was wondering if anyone has tried replacing that with one of the many SSDs floating around the web...

2 main questions I have about those:

If they're mini-pciE, why are there sata versions and pata versions out there? There's no sata or pata connector on these cards it seems, the pci-e connector is all there is. Do they somehow use the sata/pata controller on the motherboard via the pci-e bus?

2nd question; would there be any way to boot from one of these? The bios has a bunch of options for booting up, network, usb, usb floppy, etc... but none for mini pci-e or anything like that...

Laptop is a presario C500, more precisely c551nr, broadcom 802.11b/g nic, 80gb toshiba 5400rpm slow ..... hard drive, and a celery 440 running the show..

May 4, 2009

I have two questions my first one is my wireless internet, I have a switch that has a yellow light showing that it's connected wirelessly, before I formatted my computer I could move the switch and it would say wireless off or on. What do I need to download or do to fix this?

My second question is that I have bluetooth my bluetooth switch is beside my wireless, before it would glow blue, but now it does nothing and when I hit the switch bluetooth doesn't come on or off, and I installed the bluetooth driver for my laptop but it says bluetooth device not found when I hover over the icon in the right corner of my task bar.

Dell :: Bluetooth 355 Card For M1330

Jun 10, 2008

I just purchased an M1330 without bluetooth and I'm looking to install the Dell 355 module (needs to be Vista compatible) but there are several listed on Dell's site;

[url]

There is one listed specifically for the M1330 and then there is one that says "For Windows Vista" The one for the M1330 is $11 more than the others and I'm just curious if the others are the exact same (dimension wise too)

Which one should I get?

It also looks like the Truemobile 360 which supports BT 2.1 may also work. Only real difference between it and the 355 seems to be the chipset (355 uses Broadcom, 360 uses CSR) otherwise it appears that physically they are the same dimensions and all

Dell :: Adding A Bluetooth Card Into M1530?

I've searched the forum and found a service diagram on installing the bluetooth card into the M1530 notebook. My question is, I never choose to have it put in by dell, so I know I need to purchase the card and I'm going to guess that the cable will need to be purchased as well.
