Yes, you can upgrade to this card only...


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


You can buy one new from the HP parts store...14.03 Euros.


or on eBay...


Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook...


The card will have the same throughput as the 8723 on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz band it will have a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS with an AC router.
