Changing wifi card

HP Recommended

Hello I've been wanting to upgrade my wifi card but I was searching for information if the wifi card I wanted which is the Intel Wifi 6 AX200 on my laptop which is currently using a Intel AC7265 Wifi card. So my question is can my laptop use the Intel Wifi 6 AX200 to replace my AC7265 without any major issues?

Hi:

 

Your notebook may have a BIOS whitelist which prevents the installation of a wifi card not listed in your notebook's service manual from working.

 

You can see this discussion where I thought the AX200 card would have no problem working, and I was wrong.

If you decide to take a chance on the AX200 non-vPro card, please post back and let us know the results.
