HP TX2000 Broadcom WiFi problem. Need USB Wifi

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This goes out to anyone who happens to also have an HP tx2000 laptop and ran into the broadcom mini-pcie wifi card no longer functioning in Windows 7.

If you have this laptop and this problem, and you bought a USB wifi adapter *and it WORKS*, can you please post back with which brand+model wifi adapter you purchased and how satisfied you are with its performance?


Also, if you happen to use Linux, Ubuntu or what-have-you, and can confirm that the wifi adapter functions under windows and linux, that would be a huge bonus.

+rep to whoever can solve this headache for me. Lord knows HP can't. I swear they must not like actually having customers....

EDIT: Had a blonde moment: If I'm posting this anyway, if anyone found another mini-pcie wifi card that isn't broadcom, but works in the tx2000 in windows 7 and linux, I would much rather have a card on the inside of my machine, than a usb stick that will snap off if I'm clumsy (which can happen... )

Technically any mini-PCIe wifi card will work if the drivers exist for the OS in question. I may have a few lying around from my laptop tear downs that I'd be willing to send to you for the price of shipping if I can find them.

As far as USB wifi sticks go, I have a Linksys AE1000 that I use with my desktop and it is great. Rarely drops signals when I bring my desktop to other places and use wifi. Sometimes I feel it has better reception than my laptop even though it has no big antenna sticking out. Same concept goes for this one, if the OS has drivers, it should work.
