WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Anonymous
Not applicable

I am running two computers side by side.  One is a HP Envy, W10 machine with a the BCM43142 network card installed and the other a six year old HP Pavillion with a Qualcom Atheros 802.11 a b g n dual band wireless network module installed.  The "old" machine has ookla test speeds three times as fast as the new Broadcom card, which had been tested off site by HP and determined working in proper order with the most current driver installed in the unit.  The HP tech further stated the Broadcom card had a limit to the maximum wi fi speed which is less than the six year old Qualcom card.  Is this possible?  And if so, is there a Broadcom product that provides faster wi fi speeds equivalent or better than the Qualcom unit?

Unfortunately, the BCM43142 and the associated PC adapter it's installed onto are not supported here on the community forums. Card manufactures themselves control which features are implemented within firmware, which are then often based on the limitations of the host OS.  You may want to reach out to HP through their user forums to see if they can provide any guidance as their may be firmware/driver/bios updates that can help resolve the issue.
