Upgrade WLAN card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Slimline s5-1414-pc
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

My wireless network adapter isn’t working as efficiently since I upgraded to a new AC1600 Dual Band WiFi AC+ Gigabit router. My desktop still has the original wlan 802.11n network card. I’m wondering what my options are for upgrading to a faster, dual band AC wlan card?

You will only be able to upgrade the original wifi card if there are two antenna cables connected to it.


Open up the PC and if there are two antenna cables connected to the wifi card, then you should be able to upgrade to this model...


Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0     HP Part # 710661-001


The card is readily available on Amazon or eBay.


Do your search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.


This card has an 867 MBPS maximum connection speed with an excellent signal.


If there is only one antenna cable going to the wifi card, then the easiest thing to do would be to purchase an external USB AC wifi adapter.
