My desktop is currently using Realtek RTL8723be 802.11 bgn Wifi adapter, which only supports 2.4GHz. I wonder how I can get a compatible upgrade for 5GHz wireless.
I checked on HP part list: http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=P5Q80AV. However, I did not find anything particular. It mentioned "Wireless LAN - 11ac INT 3165 M.2 MOW", but I'm not sure if it refers to this one:
Could you give me some advices about which device I could use for upgrade?
Thanks a lot

I just saw a similar post which solved by the same device I found: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/upgrade-wifi-to-support-5GHZ/m-p/6491...
Instead of desktop, this question is about a notebook. And I did not find such supported advice list in my user guide.
Can anyone help me confirm I can go with this Intel AC3165?

Yes, I see the two antenna wires going to the Realtek wifi card.
Yes, you can replace it with the Intel 3165.
But, I would go with the 7265, or 8260 2 x 2 AC adapters. Those have twice the throughput as the 3165.
