Hp Pavilion 15-ay103dx WLAN Upgrade to support dual band and Bluetooth

HP Recommended
Hp Pavilion 15-ay103dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello:

 

I am trying to upgrade my laptop so that it can support both dual band 2.5 & 5Ghz.  Also this laptop does not have Bluetooth so  wondering if you can suggest a WLAN card that can fix both of these issues. 

Currently I have a usb wifi adapter that supports dual band but its a temporary fix and does not always works.

 

Based on some previous post it looks like the WLAN model number for this laptop is 857334-855.

 

Please let me know if anybody knows a compatible WLAN card that can fix these short comes.

 

Thanks!

Hi,  @kohlikn 

 

Your notebook only has one wifi antenna, so there is only one wifi card you can upgrade to where both the wifi and bluetooth works with a single antenna, 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 the HP parts store.

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8188EE card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

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

The intel cards posted above...need two antenna cables for both the wifi and bluetooth to work.
