I have seen this question before, but not for my specific model. I am not able to see my 5g wireless connection and need to know what card I should buy for this system please. The driver I have listed now is Broadband BCM43142 802.ll bgn. I understand to get 5g I need ac. Can someone point me in the right direction as to what to purchase?

What is your machine ? For example HP ENVY Phoenix 810-160, its specs
This machine has Wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac featuring Dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 2x2 MIMO technology and integrated. Part # 724527-001 which is N/A from HP Online store
You can use SAME part to be able to get 5GHz from
It is a bit pricey. My suggestion:
Few weeks ago, for testing, I bought the following wifi card for my 11 years old machine
Unfortunately my machine uses different format, not M.2, physically won't fit therefore I went to the shop and swap to the following one (I did not have to pay more, they are same price):
And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) with the 1G wired on same machine.

UPDATE: FYI Scorptec will not ship to the US.
Thank you for the quick answer! I tried to order it, but since it's in Australia (I'm in the US) the website won't let me order. I actually found this on Amazon - it's the same model number (7265NGW) as the link you sent me:
So I've ordered this one. I'll let you know how it works.
