Internal Mobile Broadband cards and the DV6000

Posted on 2009-04-23

I am trying to find out if there is a slot that is open on the dv6000 to add a mobile broadband card. I dont want to have to choose between having wireless internet or Mobile broadband.  If the Pavilion doesnt have an open slot is there an internal card that does both G and 3g. I dont want to have to use my Pcmia slot any more as the last one broke off inside and messed up my slot.

    Section 5.8 (Page 5-16) of the service guide shows how to access the internal mini-card module.

    However, I can't find any dual 802.11/EVDO cellular cards for this slot ==> you basically have to choose between an EVDO card and an 802.11 wifi card.   Since you don't want to use your Express Card slot, I'd suggest using the internal slot for the WiFi adapter (since the notebook has integrated WiFi antenna support); and getting a USB EVDO modem for your cellular support.
