Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2x2 Network plus Bluetooth adapter (7260.HMWWB.R)

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

As an upgrade/custom enthusiast I personally love the idea of upgrading the device as well, However, HP recommends that you go easy on it as the device is equipped with parts that perform at its optimal performance and also, the upgradeable parts listed above are purely for your ease, though the decision to upgrade will be at your own discretion

With that in mind, replacing internal PCIe wifi card could get complicated as it needs to be compatible with other components and if not the device could be rendered unstable, which is why I personally suggest purchasing an external USB wireless dongle, as its simple plug & play, no compatibility issues and easy to use.


I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need any further assistance.
