I have a laptop HP Pavilion 15-217ur. I want to upgrade the wifi adapter because I need a new adapter with 5gHz, so I searched about that here in the HP community but I did not find the answer.
I would like to ask if the adapter Intel 3168.NGWG is compatible with my laptop?
If it is not compatible with my laptop, which wifi adapter is compatible?

If this is your actual notebook at the link below...
The Intel Intel 3168.NGWG most likely will not work.
First of all, in order to upgrade to a dual band Wi-Fi card where both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will work properly, your notebook needs to have two antenna wires to connect to the card.
I believe the HP 15-p2xx notebooks with single band Wi-Fi cards only have one antenna wire.
The only way you can find that info out would be to open up the notebook and check the antenna wire count before buying a dual band card.
If you don't care about Bluetooth and don't want to take the notebook apart first, then I recommend this model Wi-Fi card and part number:
Broadcom BCM 4352 WLAN 802.11 AC+BT4 2x2HMC for AMD HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC HP part # 724935-005
Below is the link to the service manual.
