Hi:

 

Your notebook only has one wifi antenna wire connected to the Realtek RTL8723DE wifi adapter.

 

The best card you can upgrade to would be this one, without having to take the entire notebook apart including the display panel area to run a second antenna wire.

 

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

 

The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express. 

 

I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.

RTL8821CE - Buy RTL8821CE with free shipping on AliExpress

 

On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
