HP Pavilion - 14-al102tx wifi card compatibility

HP Recommended
Pavilion - 14-al102tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I wish to replace my wifi card in my laptop which is the HP Pavilion - 14. I was going to buy the Intel Dual Band AC 9560. However, in the product description it said that it may not work with hp laptops. Therefore, I wish to know what wifi cards are compatible with my laptop.

Hi:

 

The  Intel Dual Band AC 9560 wifi card definitely would not have worked in your notebook.

 

There is only one wifi card you can upgrade to easily, since your notebook only has one antenna wire, and that is 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. 

 

I see Intel 3165 cards listed at the top of the eBay listings, so don't buy those.

RTL8821CE - Buy RTL8821CE with free shipping on AliExpress

 

On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001

 

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

Thanks for the reply, just curious what the point of the HP Part # of 915620-001 is for.

You're very welcome.

 

If you don't get a model with either of the HP part numbers I referenced, there is a chance it may not work because any other part number was made for a different brand PC.
