Is it possible to upgrade my realtek rtl8188ee wifi card to any wifi 6 card?

Hi I just wanted to know if it would be possible to replace my wifi card to a wifi 6 card. I currently have a realtek rtl8188ee with no bluetooth on my laptop. I just wanted to upgrade as the card runs a bit slow. thank you

Hi:

 

Open up the notebook, and if it has two wifi antennas connected to the Realtek card in there now, then you can upgrade to this model card.

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

You should be able to find plenty of them on eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
