HP Recommended

What dual band wifi card would I need to upgrade my single band HP-615939-001, in my HPE H8-1234 desktop?

Hi:

 

Unless your PC has two wifi antenna cables connected to the wifi card in there now, you would not be able to do a direct swap to a dual band wifi card with bluetooth, as they require two wifi antenna cables for both the wifi and bluetooth to work.

 

If your PC has two wifi antenna cables connected to the card in there now, you can upgrade to this model card, which you can probably find on eBay by searching by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card...

Thanks! My machine does have both antenna cables connected. And as you suggested I did find on Ebay the wifi card suggested. As a side note I had found help on HP support from other postings upgrading single band wifi cards to dual band for two other HP laptops. A great way of extending the usability of an older machine. Thanks again!
