Installed and up and running in 5 min.,
This review is from: Intel Network 6235AN.HMWWB Centrino WiFi Card Half Mini PCI Express Advanced-N 6235 Dual Band Bluetooth (Personal Computers)
My HP DV6t Quad Edition with i7-3610qm came with the 2230 single band and I wanted dual band so I bought this for about $25.00 with tax and shipping, recived it the next day and installed it with no problem (Took about 5 min.) Now I have dual Band N with BT 4.0 and WIDI. Nice upgrade for the money. You must check if your CPU and MB and chipset is compatable to this.

This was recommended to be by another Amazon review. You mention I need to check my CPU and MB and chipset for compatability. How did you check it before you bought it? Was there a website for that? Thanks in advance.

I did alot of looking on Intels site to find out if it should work. Because I had a gen 3 i7 and think it is a HM77. The network adapter that came with My HP DV6t-7000 was a 2230 single band with tooth 4.0. You will have to just try to find this info on Intels web site. I did find the info at intels site before I ordered it and it should work and it did.

Is it still working well for you? Also I have the same laptop and wanted to know, do you need to run an additional antenna wire to get the dual band advantage? Thanks

I ordered it with the Intel 2230. It can with two antenna wires so I just took out the 2230 and put the wires on the same way as they where on the 2230. Just take the one screw out of the back and slide the cover out and take a look if it has two wires it. I think it had one small screw holding it in place. The antenna wires just snap on the wireless adapter. Just be careful doing it. So if you ordered it with the WIDI it well have the two wires, if not then take a look to see. Mine works fine with the 5Ghz band for WIDI but the 2.4 does not work as nice. They have alot of updte for it after the install.

I have a Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 with an Intel i7 Core that I recently purchased, with that "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Single Band" as my stock wireless card. What a POS! My laptop from 2007 has more wireless capability than this piece of crap. So, like you, I have just purchased the "Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 Dual Band" wireless card. When I receive the shipment and install it I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the anecdote, now I know I am not the only one suffering here.

I did not like the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Single Band and now I use the 5Ghz band, works for me. They have a lot of drive and software up-dates on the Intel site.

Just installed it, and am currently using it wirelessly on 5.0 GHz band. My computer is no longer handicapped!
