Upgrade network card wifi

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-au116nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hello,

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?

Thanks.20211007_125158.jpg

Hi:

 

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.
