Wifi card upgrade

HP Pavilion Gaming 15 ak030nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

 

I want to upgrade the wifi card in my laptop. I was thinking of upgrading  to one of the Intel cards.

 

Thinking of this one:

Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 wlan adapter

Will this work on my laptop?

 

Also, I think my laptop has an M.2 slot inside but I really can't find it in the spec sheet. Can anyone confirm that I can upgrade it with an M.2 SSD?

 

Kind regards,

 

Erik

For the M.2 SSD I was talking about this video. It seems that it is the same laptop as me so do I have the option too?

Welcome to the HP Support Community @12erik1234

 

For the WiFi and M.2 SSD:

 

Remove the Bottom Cover and see if you have 2 antenna and that there is an M.2 slot.

Thank you REO51ST,

 

This basically confirms everything I need to know. Thank you for sending me the remove/replace video's Judging from those video's I can see that it has the options for the M.2 and the wifi card.

 

Kind regards,

 

Erik
