Hi:

 

Since your notebook has an Intel 3rd gen core processor, you can upgrade to this dual band AC card with bluetooth.

 

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

 

You can find the card on eBay or maybe Amazon.

 

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

 

Before installing the Intel wifi card, go to the device manager, and uninstall both the the Realtek wifi adapter. 

 

Also check the Uninstall driver box.

 

Shut down the PC and install the Intel card.

 

W10 should automatically install the drivers, but they will be old.

 

You can get the latest wifi and bluetooth drivers from Intel and the link below.
