Hi:

 

Before I can suggest a possible wifi card upgrade, I need to know how many wifi antenna wires are connected to the wifi card currently installed.

 

If there is only one, a dual band wifi card will not work properly.

 

Here is the link to the service manual...

I read from the service manual, page 69. There are 2 antenna cables from the Wifi module. The #1 WLAN antenna cable is connected to the WLAN module Main terminal. The #2 WLAN
antenna cable is connected to the WLAN module Aux terminal. That's what in the service manual.

Yes, I know what is in the service manual.

 

You can't rely on the picture.

 

Some models in that series came with one antenna and some with two...depending on the model wifi card HP used.

Network card: Integrated 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet LAN

Wireless Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.0 combo (Miracast compatible)

 

That is my product specifications.
