Hi:

 

You can upgrade to this card with a direct swap.  This card works with one antenna cable.

 

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

 

The only place I have been able to find this model is on eBay.

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8723 on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

On a dual band wireless N router, it would have a maximum throughput of 150 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

You're very welcome.

 

The problem is all Intel wifi cards require two antenna cables, and yours only has one.

 

In order to properly run a second antenna cable, you have to disassemble the entire notebook including the display panel area to run the antenna.

 

You would also have to order the antenna kit listed in your notebook's service manual to get the right antenna/transciever length.

 

If you install the Intel card, with one antenna you will have a choice of either having no wifi or no bluetooth, depending on what terminal you attach the single antenna cable to.

 

Below is the link to the service manual.

You're very welcome.

 

Unfortunately, I would not know if you can change out the display and recommend that you start a new post on that question.
