HP ENVY x360 - 15t-bp100
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I am getting a new WIFI 6 router and I am thinking to upgrade my WIFI card on my notebook because I keep losing internet connection. If I get a WIFI 6 network card for my pc will it work with the router and will it be faster? 

 

I currently have Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 and can you guys please suggest to me a good intel WIFI 6 card for my HP ENVY x360 - 15t-bp100 notebook. Will this work for my pc - Amazon link?

 

My notebook specs -

Intel® Core™ i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz Intel® UHD Graphics 620

16 GB RAM 
Intel Optane + 1TB HDD
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265

Hi:

 

No one will be able to confirm that the AX200 will work in your model.

 

It should if your notebook does not have a BIOS whitelist.


Most HP notebooks made after 2014 do not, but there are a few exceptions, and I don't know if your notebook's model series is one of the exceptions.

 

You must get a non-vPro version of any Intel card you install or it won't work.

 

I don't see that the model wifi card you selected specifically states that it is non-vPro.

 

I recommend this card as an alternative, which you can get on eBay.  Search by the HP part number.

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro   HP part # L35282-005

 

L35282-005 | eBay

 

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