Hi,

Is it possible to upgrade my WiFi card in current laptop (AF006AX) to Dual band (5Ghz) compatible Card?

Please provide the details which card should I opt for so that it is compatible and working with the motherboard.

Hi:

 

Yes, there is one model wifi card you can upgrade to, and that is this one...

 

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

 

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

 

I see Intel 3165 cards listed at the top of the eBay listings, so don't buy those.

RTL8821CE - Buy RTL8821CE with free shipping on AliExpress

 

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 removal and replacement procedure.
