I am using HP Notebook 15-ac646tx since 2016, and I am willing to upgrade wireless wifi card in this laptop. I ordered Intel AX210 wireless card and replaced it with existing one. But my laptop is not showing it, even after installing Intel wifi drivers for Intel AX210NGW. When I booted into HP System Diagnosis, I selected system components test, in this test i found that Wireless module is not installed. Even I plugged in correct. But when I changed wireless card back to existing one it's showing wireless module installed. What's wrong with Intel AX210 card or with my system?

Your notebook has a BIOS whitelist and there is only one model dual band Wi-Fi card that I know of that is not listed in the service manual that will work.
Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.
You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express.
I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.
On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.
