The series has following options

 

  • Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0 Combo Adapter (non vPRO) part # 784644-005
  • Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter part # 792609-005
  • Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 Combo Adapter part # 792610-005
  • Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + BT 4.0 Combo Adapter part #  806723-005

You should be able to upgrade to one of two Intel adapters above.

Hi, @Siwiman 

 

Your notebook only has one wifi antenna, so there is only one wifi card you can upgrade to where both the wifi and bluetooth works with a single antenna, 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 the HP parts store.

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8723BE card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

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

The intel cards posted above...need two antenna cables for both the wifi and bluetooth to work.
