Broadcom wireless adapter not working
I had an older HP dv6000 series laptop which I gave to my son. It has the built-in Broadcom 802.11 wireless adapter. This has stopped working regardless of whether the switch is on or off. It also does not show in Network Devices. This is a known problem with these computers as I found by doing some research. Seems those under warranty are repaired by having HP replace the motherboard. I know this one will not be repaired at its age. However, can I purchase a PCI Express wireless card that would work? Or would a USB adapter be better? My son needs the wireless working to connect to the Internet where he lives.
