Solved!

Upgrade this wireless card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion HPE h8-1114 Deskto
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to upgrade my wireless card on this pc, but I do not know which card to pick, and if it is possible. I am looking to get a stronger card with dual band. 

 

If you can help, I will appreciate it. if you can give me some compatible model, it will be great. 

 

This is the link to the pc product specifications.

Hi:

 

You would have to first open up the case and determine if there are two wireless antennas connected to the present wifi adapter.

 

You wouldn't be able to remove and replace the internal wifi card with a dual band wifi card unless there are two antennas connected to the wifi card in there now.

 

Once you let me know that, I can give you two options.

 

If your PC does not have two antennas connected, the easiest thing to do would be to purchase an external usb dual band N or AC wireless network adapter.

That's good news.

 

Here are the two cards I recommend for you...

 

If you have or plan to get an AC router...

 

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

 

If you only have a dual band wireless N router and don't plan on replacing it anytime soon...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260AN 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi + BT4.0   HP Part # 717381-001

 

Either card is readily available on Amazon or eBay.

 

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

 

Just make sure you uninstall the current wifi/bluetooth card drivers and software, and shut down, unplug the PC, before installing the replacement wlan card.
