Solved!

5GHz WiFi Adapter upgrade

HP Recommended
HP 14-ac005tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi! I don't have any problem, but I just wanted to say thank you to Paul_Tikkanen for solving my doubts about the choice of WiFi cards. I've heard of HP whitelisting compatible WiFi cards, and so I 've resorted to RTL8821CE he suggested over here, here, and here.

I bought one with HP part number on AliExpress for $4. I wasn't really sure the card will be compatible with my laptop (HP 14-ac005tx) because I can't find anyone with this exact model upgrading theirs, but when my I installed my new card it was smooth sailing. Literal plug and play.

 

Found my 5GHz WiFi right away. Bluetooth works, 5GHz Hotspot also works. So happy. Big thanks to Paul!
