please help be buying a better one of wifi adapters

My lappy has the Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter, which malfunctioned and i want to replace it with a better one that can receive much better signal. Also the adapter should be accompanied by a Bluetooth.

Eg. My adapter Looks like the one below ( with 2 antennas )

The numbers are the HP Part No and you have to order the part that way. A non-HP card even with the same chip will not work. All of the listed cards will work and all are better than what you have.

Re: Want to replace my wifi mini PCIe(half) adapter

Here are your other options:

 

Atheros 9485GN 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi and 3012 Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter 655795-001
 
Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi and 2070 Bluetooth 2.1+EDR Combo adapter (BT3.0+HS ready) 600370-001
 
Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi Adapter 593836-001
 
Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi and 20702 Bluetooth 4.0 Combo
Adapter 657325-001
 
Unfortunately, you can only use an actual HP part and it has to be one of the above or the computer will not POST. The BIOS will stop you cold with an "unsupported device" message. I have always liked Atheros cards and here is the Atheros on eBay:
