Solved!

Can I upgrade my wifi with a unit that is not in the manual?

Is it possible to upgrade the wifi with a unit that is not in the manual? The manual on lists Intel AC7265 and AC9260. I would like to use Intel AX210 or AX200. If it is possible, could I use the same antenna that's already built in?

Hi:

 

The parts list for your notebook indicates that it either came with a 

 

7265 AC or a 9260 AC.

If it came with either one of those wifi adapters, you can use the existing antennas.

 

Whether or not the AX200 will work is another question for which no one here will have an answer.

 

It depends on whether or not your PC has a BIOS whitelist which prevents the installation of unsupported wifi adapters not listed in the manual from working.

 

HP does not release any information regarding which notebooks have a whitelist.

 

Based on the information we collect here on wifi card upgrades, most notebooks made in 2104 or later do not have BIOS whitelists, but a handful of them do.

 

If you want to give the AX200 a try, you must get the non-vPro version of the card.

 

You can find this HP part number on eBay in the $20 - $30 range.

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro 160 MHz PCI-e    HP part # L35282-005.

 

If you decide to give it a try, please post back and let us know if it worked.

You're very welcome.

 

If it was a non-vPro card, you have a chance.
