Upgrade for Railink rt5390?

HP Recommended
Pavillion dv6-6117dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is there a compatible (faster) upgrade for the Railink rt5390 card? Hopefully dual channel, 802.11ac?

Someone suggested the Intel AC 8265 but the connectors look different. The Intel AC 7260 looks more like a match.


Pavillion dv6-6117dx, Windows 10


Thanks in advance!

Your machine was built around March 2011, due to the whitelist, the chance to upgrade to a newer wifi card is very slim to none. You can only use a list on page 67 of the following manual







Early March 2020, for testing, I bought the following wifi card for my 11 years old machine




Unfortunately my machine uses different format, not M.2, physically won't fit therefore I went to the shop and swap to the following one (I did not have to pay more, they are same price):



And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) with the 1G wired on same machine (my network bundle)
