Product: HP Pavilion 590-p0057c Desktop PC PN 3LA35AA
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hi, I'm trying to move away from the installed stock Realtek RTL 8821CE PCie (1X1= 1 antenna) WLAN M.2 card in my HP Pavilion 590-p0057c Desktop. I verified tonight my system does in fact have only 1 antenna. I would like to upgrade to the Intel Wireless-AC 9260 M.2 (2X2= 2 antennas), or something comparable.
Currently my max connection speeds are 135-200 Mbps. I am on a 400 Mbps broadband plan with Comcast. I have their X1 platform Gateway. I'm only 25' from the Gateway.
My work laptop (sits right next to the Pavilion) is a Dell Latitude 5511 and has a Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160 Mhz WLAN card. When I speed test the Dell, it constantly reports a connection speed of 365-385 Mbps.
Can someone help me validate that this Pavilion can/will work with a 2 antenna WLAN M.2 Wi-Fi card such as the AC 9260? Is there any issue with the card pinouts being different? They both look like they are keyed the same.
Thank you Paul for your information. I have ordered an AC 9260NGW (non-vPro) this evening. After reading your thoughts....my only concern left is on the 9260, there is one extra gold contact by the "E" slot that the Realtek card did not have. I'm hoping the Lincs MB is smart enough to figure out what that contacts purpose is!
