    Is this the 6235 or 6230? Is there a difference between those two? I think the 6235 has bluetooth 4.0 but I'm looking for the most stable connection card. Do any of these have known problems?

    Thanks

    Go with the 6235 for BT 4.0 and for reliability and it has very good reviews. If you can afford it try to get a Ultimate-N 6300, unfortunately it doesn't have BT.

    The Intel Advanced are very good combo cards. Killer makes a good card too, albeit some driver issues.

    Get the 6235. The regular wireless part of the 6230 and 6235 is exactly the same.

    As long as it's the same connection interface, it should work just fine.

    Hah, no, watch out! I happen to go through an ordeal with my daughter's HP Pavilion DV7t right now, and one of the niceties of HP laptops is that they check your wireless card against a Whitelist they have in their BIOS. If you try to put in the wrong card, the laptop will not start. What's even better is that it appears that, not only do you need to have the right card, you also need to buy it from HP, otherwise it won't work. Finally, there seem to be cases where a card is listed as compatible in the manual incorrectly, so it may not work either way. No further comment...

    On a somewhat related note, for the heck of it I just tried a Dell Ericsson WWAN adapter in my HP ProBook 6475b and got a message that the WWAN was not compatible and it was disabled. I agree with Pirx, make sure the WIFI card is compatible.
