Linux

HP Pavilion 110-417c 

HP Pavilion running Linux Mint 21.1

Product # J4W29AAR#ABA

The current wifi card is Realtek RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter with 2.4 GHz band and max speed of 80 Mbps according to https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04444085.

1. I am looking to improve my wifi speed and also enable use of 5 GHz wifi if possible.  Is there a wifi card that would provide this which would be compatible with my PC which is available for purchase?

2. Link above states "Antennas: Supports both single and dual antenna configurations".  Is it possible that my PC is configured to use single antenna configuration and would configuring to dual antenna help performance?  How can I tell and how can I change config?

Thanks!
