Upgrade of Intel Wireless card

HP Recommended
HP Envy 15T-j000 Quad edition
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Envy TS15 Notebook,  (HP Envy 15t-j000 Quad edition CTO notebook).  Has Intel i7-4700 and 12 GB mem.  Operating Win 10 pro 64bit.  Since new, the wireless has had frequent drops with the current wireless card (an Intel 2230 card installed with the computer when new) and the warranty is expired.   I want to upgrade the wireless card to get the 5G.  Installed is a Netgear AC1900 smart wifi router, model R7000.  These frequent wireless drops do not occur with 2 other HP and Lenovo laptops.  I want to be able to get the higher 5G speed that I am paying for.

 

Can you advise

1) is the HP Envy TS15 wireless card upgradeable?

2) what form factor  must the replaceent card be to fit?

3) which dual band wireless card would fit and work?  Prefer to stay with Intel.  Would the Intel dual band wireless AC 7260 card work?  How about the Intel AC8260? 

 

Thank you for any information.

Kind regards,

Jay

Hi, Jay:

 

The Intel dual band 7260 AC HMC card will definitely work, but I am not sure about the 8260.

 

If you want a description with the HP part #, here it is...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

Thank you for your quick response.  I will purchase the 7260 card and let you know how it works.  Again, thanks for the help.
