15-r101nl wifi upgrade

HP Recommended
Notebook HP - 15-r101nl (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi guys, I have this laptop and the wifi is always quite low on it because it has a 2.4GHz adapter installed. I want to upgrade the wifi adapter card inside to a 5GHz wifi card with bluetooth support.
What adapter is compatible to safely install to get 5GHz wifi and bluetooth for my model?

I can't find any specs on your specific model notebook.


I need to know two things before I can answer your question...


1.  What model processor does your notebook have?


2.  How many antenna wires are connected to the wifi card in there now?


You will need to open up the notebook to answer the second question.


Below is the link to the service manual.   See chapter 6.
