HP PAVILION G4-2002TX Wifi card upgrade (whitelist)

HP Recommended
Pavilion G4-2002TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have been having this laptop for quite a while. This laptop is equipped with RALINK RT5390BC8 Wifi card that only able to detect 2.4Ghz. I am thinking to upgrade my wifi card so that it can also detect 5Ghz. So I heard about this Hp 'whitelist', how do I know whether my laptop is on the HP 'whitelist'? Am I able to upgrade my wifi card?

 

Thanks!

I'm actually using the following adapter, cheap and no headache for my 11 years old machine. I bought this is at the same store early March 2020 for A$39.00 before went up and now down:

Now my machine is connected to 2 networks and it is smart enough to use the 5G network first.
