Hi:

 

Yes, there is one dual band AC wifi card you can upgrade to, and that is this one...

 

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 Ali Express,

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

 

The card will have the same throughput as the 8723DE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

The HP part number 915620-001 will be fine.

 

You can change the country at the top of the page.

 

You don't need the antennas so get the cheapest one you can.
