#Don_Grappler I am really sorry for asking silly question. I am a noob and took several months to make my hpProbook 4530s a hakintosh.
Now i am one step behind that is the Wifi issue .
My laptop model is
Hp ProBook 4530s
Product no :BOL64PA#ACJ
Network Card : Realtek model RTL8188CEB8 (HP P/N : 602640-002)
Intel i5-2450m CPU
BIOS 68SSR Ver . F.20
After seeing all the post about wifi issues and the card i m very much confused to buy which one. And this post made it 80% percent simpler to me after searching a lot i found out two links below
(http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-AR5BHB92-Dual-band-802-11b-Toshiba/dp/B009HN63QQ)
(http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Atheros-...reless-PCIe-Half-Size-Mini-Card-/110947424043)
I am confused in which one i should go for and which one will solve the issue and work perfectly with my probook.
Please help me with the issue waiting for the confirmation

Neither of those cards will work for the 4530s without "rebranding." Instead look for an HP branded AR5B195.

If the offer is not explicit about it, you might also want to inquire with the seller first if his card DOES work with HP laptops.
