Re: Best wireless adapter to upgrade from a Centrino N2230?

I have an HP Envy 17t-J000.  Product number is C8U19AV.  Running Windows 10.  What is the best AC-capable wireless adapter to replace the Centrino N2230 for my machine?

Hi:

 

It depends on your preference.

 

If you want a dual band AC card, go with this one...

 

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

 

If you want a dual band N card, go with this one...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260AN 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi + BT4.0     HP Part # 717381-001

One more question:  I am trying to find the link to download the driver for HP 710661-001 wireless card.  So far no success.  Your help will be appreciated.

Hi:

 

Actually, you won't need the wifi driver. 

 

W10 will automatically install that particular wifi card for you.
