Looking to upgrade WiFi/Bluetooth on hp pavilion 15-p220nt
Trying to avoid buying adapter that is not compatible. Are there any AC WiFi , type upgrades?

The problem you will face is that if your notebook only has a 2.4 GHz-capable Wi-Fi card, there is only one antenna wire connected to it.
The HMC form factor cards that fit in your notebook require two antenna wires to function correctly.
You would have to sacrifice signal quality or Bluetooth reception if you want to upgrade to a dual band Wi-Fi card in your notebook.
Since your notebook has an Intel core processor, this card would work, but with only one antenna wire, I don't know how well.

Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the Wi-Fi card removal and replacement procedure.
