HP Pavilion x360 - 13-s100nt (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone,

 

I currently have 1000 Mbps cable internet at home. The problem is that I can only use 50 Mbps of it. My question is can I upgrade my wifi 4.0 to wifi 6 by changing my wifi adapter? Can wifi 6 adapter be installed for hp Pavilion x360 s100nt model?

 

thanx in advance.

Hi, Ugur:

 

I take it that your notebook has the Realtek RTL8723BE Wi-Fi adapter?

 

If so, I am pretty sure that there is only one antenna wire in your notebook to connect to it, and a Wi-Fi 6 card would require two antenna wires.

 

If you want to open up the notebook and check to see how many wires are connected to the card, you can do that, and I can recommend a different card than this Wi-Fi 5 card that will work with one antenna wire:

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express. 

 

I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.

On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.

 

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