Hey guys,
I'm looking for a replacement WiFi card for the HP dv7 4087cl Entertainment Notebook. It ships with an Intel WiFi BGN 1000 card, which is unusable in Mac OS X. I thought of just replacing it with an AirPort Extreme card, but then I found out that the laptop has a BIOS whitelist which only lets certain WiFi cards be installed. So I found the service manual on HPs website to see which WiFi cards I can install. I'd like to know which ones will work properly in Mac OS X. By properly, I mean support for all WiFi types (a, b, g, n) and all encryption types. Native support would be a nice addition. Here are the WiFI cards I can use:

Broadcom 4322 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN Module
Part #582564-001

Broadcom BCM94313 802.11b/g/n WLAN Module
Part # 593836-001

Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WLAN Module
Part # 605560-005

Thanks,
TheRacerMaster

I don't really want to flash a new BIOS. Do you know if any of those cards are compatible?
