The original wifi card is too slow and I would like to replace it with a AC wifi (mini pcie)
Is there a whitelist of Wlan card to this model? I find someone said HP removes the whitelist limit to notebook after 2015.
Kindly ask if the latest BIOS in 650 G1 has also removed the whitelist of WLAN card or not.
Thanks for your help

There is no whitelist in your notebook, and you can install this model wifi card...
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0 HP Part # 710661-001
You should be able to find the card on Amazon or eBay.
Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.
Below is the link to the service manual...

Thank you! I would like to share this with you. Lastly, I got one 7260ac from china website. And 650G1 works with the new card perfectly! But I thought I was stupid because this machine (650G1) has m.2 slot and I should go a step further to wifi 6 (ax).
I think if there is no whitelist to the mini-pcie (7260ac) , there should no whitelist to m.2 wlan.
Correct me if I am wrong
