Hi, I would like to upgrade my wireless card to a Wifi 6 card. I would like to ask if it is possible to upgrade it. I just want to make sure I order the right part and that it is compatiable with my BIOS. I read something about some HP's having whitelists but I don't know exactly how to check that. Any help is appreicated.
Unfortunately, your notebook has a BIOS whitelist, so you would have to use a USB wifi adapter for anything better than the wifi card your notebook currently has installed.
HP does not release any info on what notebooks have BIOS whitelists, but other forum members with the 15-ae model series have tried to install different wifi adapters in their notebooks and they didn't work.
Also, your notebook only has one wifi antenna cable connected to the wifi card installed.
I saw a thread related to Upgrading the wireless card of Envy 15-Ae116tx one of the solution says that it is possible. I am sorry I am a bit confused. Also about the wifi antenna I'm not sure but I think my laptop has two wifi antenna as you can see in the photo
