Hi:

 

There aren't any HMC form factor Wifi 6 cards that I know of.

 

You could possibly upgrade to Wifi 5 with this model...check to make sure that there are two antenna wires connected to the Atheros wifi card your notebook has now.

 

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

 

The card has a maximum throughput of 867 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router.

 

You should be able to find this model wifi card on eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

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