Hi all -

I have five HP Pavilion HPE h8-1360t Desktop PC's running Windows 7 Professional (x64).

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1360t
Product number: B4J27AV


https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03425388

All have a Broadcom BCM43225 Half Mini PCI-e Wifi Card and Bluetooth Module 802.11 B/ G/ N.

Here it is on Amazon - (I believe...)

https://www.amazon.com/Broadcom-Bcm43225-Bcm943225hmb-Wireless-Bluetooth/dp/B00Q4G78MC

It is socketed on the HP Pegatron Motherboard and can be easily removed.
I want to bring the system up to Wireless-AC and the latest revision of Bluetooth.

Problem is, I don't know what to buy or what will work, lol!

I heard that there is a wi-fi whitelist and the card needs to be compatible with the motherboard.

Here is a diagram of that, too -

Kindly tell me what I need and where to buy it. Need an expert opinion on this.

Driver links would also be much appreciated!

Many thanks!

SN :)


P.S. I would rather not use a USB solution!

Hi Peter -

Need internal route. Plus the USB adapter does not support Bluetooth, I think.

Thanks anyway! :)
