Replacing Wifi module compatibility list

Pavilion 14-al100nv(Z3D84EA)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear All,

 

I have the HP Pavilion 14-al100nv(Z3D84EA) and i would like to know what wifi modules are compatible with this laptop?

 

Is there any compatibity list for this model, because as I searched the internet not all are supported. The module has to be white listed.

 

Basically I need to change the card in order to supports 5 GHz that the default supports only 2,4 GHz.

 

(If it can support also AC I would like to know too)

 

Thanks in advance

No that's a new laptop. There is no whitelist. Hasn't been on models introduced since Windows 8 came out. 

 

You can install any wireless adapter of the correct form factor which in your case is going to be M.2. 

 

These are the two adapters offered from the factory:

 

WLAN module: Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi M.2 Combo Adapter 792608-005

Intel 3165NGWG 1 ac 1×1 + Bluetooth 4.0 LE PCIe+USB NGFF 2230 Combo Adapter 806723-005

 

The only possible issue is whether there are two antennae or one.

Hi,

 

I'm attaching similar HP factory Wifi module that the laptop has by default.

It has two antennas. So I suppose that one is for the WIFI and the other is for the Bluetooth.

 

Regards

No not exactly. Some HP laptops only have a single wireless antenna installed even though the card has two wireless connectors. It "works" but not ideally. What it does do is prevent upgrade to a better wireless module like any 802.11ac type.
