Hi,

I have successfully installed Yosemite in my HP Probook 6570b. Wifi is not working because the laptop has an Intel card.

Reading the specs of the laptop (http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04296097) there is only one Broadcom wifi card officially supported, BCM943228HM4L.

My question is: what is the best wifi card that I can buy for my laptop? By best, I mean (in this order of preference): better OS X feature support, easy to install under Yosemite, dual band.

I am following the "Guide To Install Yosemite on HP Laptops with Clover UEFI" where it is recommended the Broadcom 4322/43224. I guess that the answer is one of these cards, but I want to make sure that they are compatible with my laptop. Any advice? which one is better?

Thanks in advance,
Xavi

Hi,

Do you mean the three Broadcom cards (BCM943228HM4L, BCM4322 and BCM943224HMS)?

Does the card must be for/from HP laptops? I saw a lot of cards for/from Dell laptops. Does the brand matter?

Regards.

There is no 43228 in the guide.

No and No.
