It is a trivial (easy) matter and not expensive to replace the wireless card, but your model has the whitelist meaning only a limited group of cards can be installed. Here is the Service manual:




See pages 23-24 of the Manual for the list with HP Part numbers. 


This is the best of the bunch:


Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 802.11 b/g/n 2×2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 Combination Adapter 670290-001


See page 50 for "how to".


If you are outside the US post back and we can help you find an overseas alternative. Also open it up and be sure you have 2 wireless antenna and not just one. If it is one, post back for more help.
