Best Compatible WIFI Card Upgrade

HP ENVY dv7-7398ca Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to upgrade the WIFI card in my DV7 laptop. 

It currently run on a Ralink RT5390R 802.11bgn Wifi Adapter.

I would like to find the best (fastest) possible card available with all the bells and whistles on it. (Bluetooth and whatnot)

Also, is there any word of any new cards coming out in the near future?

Thank you in advance.

@Bau-G, thanks for the reply.

 

I have checked the specification of your laptop and there are very limited options to upgrade the wireless card.

 

You can upgrade the wireless card to: 

 

Ralink RT3090BC4 802.11b/g/n
1x1 WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
Combo Adapter (BT3.0+HS ready)

 

Refer maintenance and service guide for more information using this link.

 

 

 

 

Let me know if this helps!

Have a wonderful weekend ahead! :)
