Hi:

 

Unfortunately, that wifi card only needs one antenna cable and any other dual band wifi card you would want to upgrade to, requires two antennas.

 

In order to add a second antenna cable to upgrade to a better card, you would need to completely disassemble the notebook including the display panel area to run a second antenna cable.  Plus you would need to buy the specific antenna kit for your notebook listed in the service manual.

I would just live with the current wifi adapter your notebook comes with since it is dual band AC, rather than to through all that trouble and possibly break something during the course of taking the whole PC apart.
