@SMNC Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to upgrade the wireless card.

 

Do not worry. I will try to help you.

 

I have checked the motherboard specifications. Your motherboard has a PCI slot. You can go ahead and upgrade the  Wifi card.

 

You could purchase the part from HP, use the HP Parts surfer to identify the part: http://partsurfer.hp.com/search.aspx 

 

And order it via the HP Parts store: https://parts.hp.com/hpparts/CountryChoice.aspx?mscssid=&ccode=ZZ&lcode=ZZ 

 

Or alternatively, Contact HP for setting up an order/service via phone support.

 

Keep us posted,
