Dual-Band WLAN controller for 15-cc512ur laptop

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-cc512ur
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear Experts,

Could you please let me know the Dual-Band WLAN controllers included in BIOS Whitelist for 15-cc512ur laptop?

I'd like to replace the default Realtek RTL8723BE controller which works pretty bad.

Thank you!

Hi:

 

You can replace the Realtek RTL8723BE controller with this one...

 

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

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

 

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8723BE card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

Hi Paul,

I've just received and installed the new WLAN controller - it works fine on both 2.4 & 5.0 GHz.

Thank you!
