Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs for your notebook.

 

https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c05835979

 

It comes with a single band wifi N card that only works on the 2.4 GHz wifi band.

 

Your notebook most likely has the Realtek RTL8723BE or DE wifi adapter with Bluetooth.

 

Anytime you see a wifi N card with a suffix that ends in b/g/n , that means it is a single band card.

 

Dual band wireless N cards have suffixes that end in a/b/g/n or a/g/n.

 

If you would like to upgrade the existing card, you can replace it with this model...

 

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,

The card will have the same throughput as the 8723DE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

 

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