Intel AX200 WiFi Card on HP Envy x360 15 ee-000 with Ryzen 5 4500u

HP Recommended
Envy x360 15-ee000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if I could upgrade my device with an Intel AX200 Wifi 6 card. Online I could only find info about pc builds. Also, the wifi 6 card is available as an option when buying the laptop, but it is too overpriced so I didn't get it. I was wondering if it was compatible, or had whitelist problems, driver issues, etc.

Hi:

 

My Envy x360 15-ee0047nr with the Ryzen 5 4500u has the Intel AX200 as standard equipment, so yes that card will work fine as long as yours has the RTL8822BE wifi adapter.

 

You would need to buy the non-vPro version of the card...

Yeah, that's the one I had in my cart. Also, is it just plug and play or does it need configuration/drivers/etc.

Since my notebook came with the card from HP, the drivers were already installed.

 

W10 may install the drivers automatically, but you can get the latest Wifi and BT drivers directly from Intel.

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/189347/Intel-Wi-Fi-6-AX200-Gig-

 

To repeat...your notebook must have the Realtek 8822BE wifi adapter installed in order for the Intel AX 200 to work because both cards require two wifi antenna cables and any other wifi adapter only has one.

 

I believe it does, because I only see the Intel and Realtek cards listed in chapter 3 of the service manual.

 

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

I was looking at page 9 of http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06618426 and it says it is supported. Mine is coming with the dual-band realtek card in it so I am assuming it has the adapter in it already(please confirm, or tell me how to).

Also, I will need these two, right, if it doesn't install automatically?

Hi:

 

Yes, it will have the Realtek wifi card already installed and working and yes, those are the drivers you need to install for the AX200.

Right now, in my 2017 Envy, there is an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265. Will I be able to swap it out to get faster wifi 5 ac and Bluetooth 5. Is it supported? Also, what about that adapter you were talking about?

It has i7-8550u.

Hi:

 

The 7265 AC has basically the same specs as the Realtek 8822BE...867 MB/S maximum throughput, and Bluetooth 4.2.

 

These are the specs on the AX200...

But in the service manual paper, it says:

Integrated wireless local area network (WLAN)
Support for the following WLAN modules:
● Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth® 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro 160 MHz PCI-e + USB
WW with 2 antenna(s)
● Realtek ac 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 M.2 2230 PCI-e + USB WW

I have no idea what that USB spec is.

 

My AX 200 card is internal and works exactly like any other internal wifi card.

 

I don't get the fast speeds because I only have an AC router, and have dual band N devices on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, so I have to use mix mode and the AX200 card connects at 867 MBPS just like any other 2 x 2 AC card.
