I was reading the HP Dv7 service manual looking for a replacement wi-fi chip, and I think that my brother's chip finally kicked the bucket after around a decade of service.
I did all the usual monkeying around with drivers, and software but nothing works.
Anyway, I noticed that there were no recommendations for AC-compatible wi-fi chips in the manual.
I see that there are a lot of a/b/g/n, but nothing for the AC standard.
What should I look for in a wi-fi chip for a pavillion dv7 to optimize wi-fi performance? Is there an AC compliant chip that can be used with this computer without being rejected?
I'm looking only for chips that also support the bluetooth protocol.
