Compatibility Wifi intel AX200 for HP ENVY 17-n101nf ?

17-n101fn
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

Hello everyone sorry for my English because I am French.

I have a 17-n101nf computer I would like to change the wifi card for an Intel ax200 model.

BIOS : F.52 Rev.A - Date : Jul 7, 2019

put on the internet some say there is a whitelist in the BIOS that could prevent the computer from starting. and other users say that this white list no longer exists on recent laptops so I would like to know if I can install this card on my laptop.

otherwise I would go on an AC 9260 model.

Best regards

Compatibility Wifi intel AX200 for HP ENVY 17-n101nf ?

Hi:

 

I can't find any info on the specs for your model.

 

I assume it has an Intel 6th gen processor looking at the service manual?

 

There shouldn't be a whitelist.

 

But since HP does not publish that info, we cannot 100% guarantee it.

 

General info we have obtained through years of feedback on this forum is:

 

All HP notebooks manufactured in 2011 and earlier have BIOS whitelists.

 

A few HP notebooks made in 2012 do not have BIOS whitelists (dv6/7-7xxx, g6/g7-22xx & 23xx).

 

Most HP notebooks made in 2013 and later do not have BIOS whitelists, with one exception that I know of...the 14-ac and 15-ac model series.  Those have BIOS whitelists.

 

What model wifi adapter does your notebook have installed?

 

The single band wifi adapters only come with one antenna cable, and either of those Intel cards would require two.

Hi:

 

Yes, your notebook will have two antenna cables connected to the 7265 wifi card.

 

I'm 99% sure you can upgrade to the Intel 9260 Non-VPro card, but I don't have any info on the AX200.

 

It may work if it is non-VPro.

 

I guess it is cheap enough to experiment with if you want.

I confirm that AX200 is not compatible.

error message 704 when starting the laptop.
I just ordered the model AC9260 non VPro

Thanks for letting us know.

 

I sure hope the 9260 works, because normally when you get the 704 error message it means there is a whitelist.

Hi:

 

Sorry that didn't work either.

 

I am very surprised by that, but will make a mental note of it in case anyone else with the 17-n model series wants to upgrade the wifi card.
