Hi:

 

I do not believe it does.

 

However, I don't see from the product specs that your model came with an internal wifi adapter.

 

I would assume if that is the case, then the two required antenna cables that connect to the wifi card are not present.

 

I recommend you check to make sure there are two antenna cables inside to connect the wifi card to.

 

If your PC does have two antenna cables inside, you may as well upgrade to a better card than the one you selected...

 

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

 

The card is readily available on eBay or Amazon, and doesn't cost much at all.

 

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

You're very welcome.

 

If the PC doesn't have the two wifi antennas, then the easiest thing to do to add dual band wifi capability to your PC would be to purchase an external USB AC wifi adapter.

 

That's what I have on my HP desktop PC's.

 

Adding internal antennas is tricky and unless you know exactly where they are to be positioned, then the reception will be lousy if it works at all.

 

And there are no manuals to show you that kind of information.

Anytime.

 

I have the Linksys WUSB 6100 which I got for free with a linksys router purchase, and a linksys AE3000 on my other one.

 

They would great.

 

If you really, really would prefer an internal setup, you can purchase something like this. 

 

I have been tempted to do so but have not taken the plunge.

 

It's not completely internal as you would have to position the outside antenna somewhere on top of the PC or on a desk.
