Hi:

 

Unfortunately, the Intel AX201 Wi-Fi card won't work in your notebook.

 

That is a CNVI card that only works in notebooks that it originally came with.

 

None of the cards listed at the link below will work in your notebook.

 

What Are the Intel® Integrated Connectivity (CNVi) and Companion...

 

You have another problem...since your notebook has a Realtek RTL8821CE Wi-Fi adapter, it only came with one antenna wire and a Wi-Fi 6 card requires two antenna wires to be connected for both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to work and for best Wi-Fi reception quality.

 

If you can live without Bluetooth and want to risk not having the best Wi-Fi reception with a single antenna wire, you should be able to install this card:

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro 160 MHz with 2 antenna(s)    HP part # L35282-005.

 

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

Thanks Paul for your quick reply,

  it's a shame because my idea was to get a faster wifi connection. I know the Intel AX201 Wi-Fi adapter can reach up to 450-580 Mbit/s on a 5GHz modem network speed test. But the speed of the Realtek RTL8821CE was less 300 Mbit/s.
bw,

Would you know which adapter would fit this HP and would be as fast as Intel's AX201 adapter?

Thanks,

cheers

You're very welcome.

 

The card I posted above should work subject to the limitations I mentioned when your notebook has only one Wi-Fi antenna wire.

 

Otherwise, you would have to add a second antenna wire, or live with the card you have now.

 

There are no Wi-Fi 6/6e cards on the market today from any manufacturer that work with only one Wi-Fi antenna wire.

Right Paul,

thanks for your advice.  Maybe I need to live with this.

Anytime. 

 

Glad to have been of assistance.
