The only dual band card you can upgrade to would be this one...


Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported)  HP part # L17365-005.


You can buy the card on eBay...


Or at the HP parts store...$16.50.


Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook...


The card will have the same throughput as the RTL8723DE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz band it will have a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS with an AC router.


Here are the latest drivers for the card.  You can install them now, as they are also good for the one you have now.
