Hi:

 

Your notebook only has a single band wifi adapter and it doesn't even have bluetooth as the Realtek RTL8188EE-VJ 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi adapter is not a combination wifi/bluetooth adapter.

If you want, you could upgrade to this card which is both a dual band AC card and it has bluetooth as well.

 

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.

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.

 

Below is the link to the service manual...
