I recently received an HP Pavilion dv6-7014nr (part of the dv6-7000 series) and it came with the not-so-great Broadcom 4313GN 1x1 wireless card. I had a couple of standalone Intel dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n wireless cards laying around and I decided to give them a shot. And guess what...the system successfully booted with these cards! Obviously, these wireless cards did not prevent the system from booting. I'm hoping that this post will help those of you who have the Ivy Bridge or Trinity-based dv6 and/or dv7, and are looking for a dual-band wireless solution that actually works.

I personally would stick with the 6200/6230/6235 series - it's cheaper and you would be fully utilizing the card's capabilities.
