You're very welcome.

 

Yes, you would be good to go with the Intel 7260 AC.

I was unable to find a whitelist for Memphis2-S motherboard.  The model "280-080" did not show up on any search for HP systems that I ran.

 

My guess is that you want to upgrade to Wi-Fi 5 or 6 with Bluetooth 5 or 5.2 

The only Mini PCI express card with those features that I could find are the ones with the AX3000, AXE3000 or 7260 chipset

https://www.ebay.com/itm/195049566203

The above nicely explains all three chipset models as not working with IBM/Thinkpad/lenovo/HP laptop

More info about the AX3000H card is here

https://www.amazon.com/MPE-AX3000H-802-11ac-Wireless-Express-Network/dp/B091FJXQHH

quote " Such as used on Samsung/Dell/Sony/ACER/ISUS/MSI/Clevo/Terransforce/Hasee etc ,but do not support all IBM/Thinkpad/Lenovo/HP laptops."

It is possible that this card does not work in HP because the 4 screws cannot hold the heat sink onto the motherboard.  Is is also possible it does not work because it is not compatible and the system will not boot up.

 

Our expert @Paul_Tikkanen might be able to recommend a mini pci express card better than than one you have.

 

I suspect the best that can be done is to remove the existing card and obtain the AC210 chipset PCIe card and use either the X1 or X16 expansion socket on your motherboard.  

 

That EDUP x1 PCIe adapter worked fine for me in an HP3400 pro and also an HP 6000 system.

Thisis my Slimline 450-080. 

Maybe pcie x1 wifi card is the only one solution.

Hi, @chunglhc 

 

The parts list for your PC indicates that it comes with a Broadcom single band HMC Wi-Fi card.

 

HP PartSurfer

 

What I can't determine from the parts list is whether or not your PC comes with one or two antenna wires.

 

In order to do a direct swap from the Broadcom card to a dual band HMC card, your PC needs to have two antenna wires connected to the Broadcom Wi-Fi card.


If it does, then you should be able to upgrade to this model Wi-Fi card:

 

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

 

If your PC only has one antenna wire, then I recommend you go with a PCIe x1 Wi-Fi option.

 

You will have more choices with the PCIe x1 option such as Wi-Fi 6.

You might first try to upgrade your drivers to get better performance

You have either Realtek or Broadcom and could have to check device manager to see which adapter you have

drivers are here (select windows 10)

There is also a BIOS update "A0.17"  May 2018 but I did not see any reference to WiFi improvements and any upgrade to BIOS can be dangerous.

The following might be useful for WiFi but might not apply to your older WiFi card
