I would like to replace the current Realtek 8723BE card which works only on the 2.4 ghz frequency with a 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz dual band. Which card do you recommend?

Since your notebook only has one antenna wire, the only card you can upgrade to would be this one...


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


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.
