I just bought a new HP g7-1084nr, I use Windows as well as some Linux distros. The laptop came equipped with a Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter, and I don't like it a bit. I am wanting to find a direct replacement for the wifi card, with the integrated bluetooth, preferably Atheros. I was wondering exactly what I need to compare and where I need to start to find a direct replacement?

You're welcome.

You can probably mark this topic as "Solved" if you are fairly sure you found a suitable WLAN module in the list.

HP and a few others like to lock down their systems so they only take a few certain approved cards from them, be very sure that the card you get is in fact compatible otherwise you may get a message on boot up about an unsupported card.
