You can upgrade to this model wifi card...


Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001


You should be able to find the above wifi card on eBay.  Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.


Before installing the Intel card, go to the Windows control panel>programs>uninstall a program.


If there is any Ralink bluetooth software listed there, uninstall it.


Then go to the device manager, uninstall the Ralink bluetooth adapter under the Bluetooth adapters device manager category and check the uninstall driver box.


Do the same thing for the Ralink wifi adapter under the Network Adapters device manager category.


Then shut down, unplug the PC, remove the battery and install the wifi card.
