Dual Band Upgrade 23-q112

23-q112
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is it possible to upgrade the internal network adapter to dual band on an HP23-q112 . I prefer that over an external adapter but am aware that is an option. I find it hard to believe HP would ship a modern desktop  with single band wifi .

@cllark1 , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is a wifi adapter that should work for you.  I would check with the manufacturer's Tech Support to assure that it is supported by Win 10, however.

 

S: I find it hard to believe HP would ship a modern desktop with single band wifi .

 

A: You have to remember that your computer was originally released in 2015.  Few of the OEM manufacturers were adding dual band adapters; except in their top of the line models.

@cllark1, I can't tell from the description of your current adapter if there were one or two antennas; although there appears to be two connectors.  If the current antennas work you should be fine.
