Hi:

 

According to the specs, there is only one internal antenna cable.

Open up the PC and check to confirm that there is only one antenna cable connected to the wifi card in there now.

 

If there is, you can't directly swap the internal card for a dual band one.

 

If there are two antenna cables connected to the wifi card in there now, let me know, and I will give you a recommendation for a dual band wifi card.

 

An alternative internal solution might be this, as long as you have an open PCIe x1 slot...I blew up the picture of the motherboard your PC has on the specs page, and it appears to have an internal USB connector (black rectangle with 9 pins on the lower right edge of the motherboard picture, to the right of the SATA ports).

 

I picked up a few of these on eBay, and installed them in two of my HP and one Dell desktop and they work great.

 

To have the Bluetooth work, you need to attach the USB cable that comes with the kit to the internal 9-pin USB connector on the motherboard, and the other end to back of the wifi card, where you see the gold pins.

 

As long as you don't mind having an external antenna.  It does have its advantages, as you can move it around to get the best reception.

If you want one of those, you can disconnect the antenna cable and remove the internal card you have now.

 

I would insulate the loose cable end so no metal touches the motherboard.
