Dual band Compatible WiFi Card Envy 700-074 Model #H5Q09AA

HP Recommended
Envy 700-074
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Wanting to upgrade my Envy 700-074 from single-band 2.4Ghz 1 x 1 technology to a Dual Band wireless card to utilize 5.0Ghz internet.

 

Currently the machine has a Ralink RT3290 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adaptor installed that came originally with machine

 

Processor is Intel Core i5-4430 CPU @ 3.00Ghz 4 cores

 

Motherboard: MS-7826 (Kaili) Form Factor uATX

 

Expansion slots: 1 PCI Express x16 (Gen3.0);  3 PCI Express x1 (Gen2.0); 1 half-length mini card

 

What card would I need that would be compatable with these specs. Or, where can I go to find this information?

 

Thank you for any help.

Eaglemom, welcome to the forum.

 

Here is a wireless card that will work for you.  You will need a router that is capable of using 802.11ac, also.  I had this card in an HP Omen Gaming Laptop and it worked great with my ASUS router.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I see where you put this card in a laptop. Do you have any knowledge of it being in a desk top? Looking at this card it looks like to the Ralink RT3290 presently in the machine so I am sure it will fit space wise, but give me the 5.0 I am seeking. 

 

My router offers 2.4 and 5.0 options so I am good there!

 

Also, have you had issues with it being white listed by HP? If so, how were you able to resolve it? 

 

I know quite a bit about computers, but there is also quite a bit I do not know! 

 

Thank you for your help.

You are welcome.  Thank you for the additional information.

 

Here is the wireless card that is installed in the computer according to the Product Specifications:

  • Interface type: PCI express half-length mini card
  • Data transfer speeds: Up to 150 Mbps
  • Transmission standards: 802.11b/g/n
  • Antenna: Single band 2.4 GHz
  • Operating range: Depends on environment

You will find this information in the section titled Networking.  The card that I suggested will fit into the same slot.  Here are the expansion slots on the motherboard:

 

One PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0)

  • Three PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.0)
  • One PCI Express half-length mini card socket
