Hi:

 

There is one wifi card you can upgrade to, since your notebook only comes with one antenna wire.

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or at the HP parts store for $16.50.

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8188EE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

Here is the link to the service manual for your notebook, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

First off, thanks for such a speedy response. Second, I'm kinda looking for something newer that I could use, one that has ac and bluetooth if possible. Could I use like a intel one?

Thanks

You're very welcome.

 

The RTL8821CE is a dual band wifi AC card with bluetooth.

 

It is the only card that will work in your notebook since it only has one antenna.

 

The Intel cards all require two antenna wires, and many of them will not work on notebooks with AMD processors and chipsets.

 

The two Intel cards listed as supported in your notebook's service manual both require two antenna wires, and they have the same 433 MBPS throughput as the RTL8821CE.

You're very welcome.

 

Unfortunately, I can't.  When you post links to the actual part, it never shows up.

 

Just enter the part number L17365-005 in the HP parts store search window at the link I posted above.

 

I just entered it and now it shows the card is on back order, so you will have to get it on eBay if you want one soon.
