Wireless-AC card upgrade/compatibility for Notebook 15-ac151dx ?

Product Name: Notebook - 15-ac151dx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Currently, my  Notebook 15-ac151dx (product #: T0D84UA)  has a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 wireless card. I want to upgrade it to something that supports wireless-AC, or at least supports 5GHz.


After 2 hours of searching online, I still can't find a clear answer on what would be compatible with my model. Has anyone upgraded their 15-ac151dx WiFi card? Or can someone point me to a list of compatible parts that support 5Ghz/dual-band/wireless-ac??
