HP - 14-am100nf WIFI card upgrade

HP - 14-am100nf
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I would like to replace my current HP - 14-am100nf WIFI card with an AC WIFI card and I can't find the HP - 14-am100nf  Manitenance and Service Guide.

Where can I find this guide and do you know any compatible HP spare part that I could order ?

Hi:

 

If your notebook has a Realtek 8723BE or DE wifi card, you can upgrade it to this model...

 

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

 

The only place I have been able to find this model is on eBay.

 

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

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8723 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.

 

On a dual band wireless N router, it would have a maximum throughput of 150 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

 

I cannot find a service manual.  I checked the am100 series and the am000 series.

Hi Paul,

 

Thanks a lot for your quick answer !

 

I even could find the HP part # L17365-005 available on the HP parts store :

Do you think it would be possible to remplace my Realtek 8723BE card by a Realtek RTL8822BE instead of Realtek RTL8821CE, in order to have 2 streams and a maximum throughput of 867 MPS ? Would you know the HP part number in this case ?

You're very welcome.

 

Thanks for letting me know HP has the card back in stock.  It has been out of stock for over two years!

 

The problem with installing the  RTL8822BE is that card requires two antenna cables and your notebook will only have one.

 

So...you may get the full 867 MBPS and no bluetooth, or you may get poor reception all around, but you will not have the best experience with the 8822BE.

 

If you get bad reception due to only having one antenna cable, the card will not come close to the 867 MBPS throughput.
