Hi:

 

You would need to have two antenna wires for a Wifi 6 card.

 

However, you can do a direct swap to this Wifi 5 card which is better than what you have now...

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express,

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

 

The card will have the same 72 MBPS throughput as the original wifi card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

hey Paul, thank you for replying and helping me out. If you don't mind, could you check out/enter this link? https://shopee.com.my/product/129774262/4858084105?smtt=0.187942210-1615395143.10 is it this one i should buy like you said? I'm sorry because I'm from Malaysia and to buy from ebay is a little bit difficult in terms of shipping and cost.
