Replacing laptop wireless mini pcie card in hp pavilion
My wireless card in my laptop just broke down (it even doesn't show up with lspci anymore). It was a Broadcom card in HP Pavilion dv6000. I would like to replace this card with an Intel Wireless 349ABG, because I've heard those have open source drivers and should preform very well, unlike the Broadcom card. It is the same size and also has two antenna connectors and you can find them on eBay for cheap.
Will the new card work in my laptop? I don't see any reason why not if mini pcie is standard like regular pci and pcie, but I've heard about laptop vendors checking for unauthorized cards, is this the case with HP? Will the switch and the indication light still work?
