@morfeas4 Here's everything you need to know about upgrades:

 

I must let you know that HP does not recommend upgrades or hardware changes as the device is equipped with parts that perform at its optimal performance by design, that said, the upgradeable parts listed by HP articles are purely for your ease, as the decision to upgrade will be at your own discretion.

 

The above parts are tested and approved by HP, if you wish to change the same, you may do so at our own discretion.

 

I hope that answers your query,

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

After reading your post, I did go through the Product specifications of your product and found that you have 802.11b/g/n drive installed on the PC. 
If your adapter supports 802.11a, it will definitely support 5GHz. The same goes for 802.11ac.  

 

To get the answer to this question, this computer does not support the 5G network or dual band.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Hello there

Thanks for your answer however my laptop's hardware (as I bought it with Windows Vista and I upgraded to Windows7 64 bit) supports only 802.11b/g. When I received the free upgrade to Windows 10 64 bit the only driver has been installed is for 802.11g. I'm looking for a potential solution to replace my wifi card in order to achieve dual band wifi. I realize that the compatibility is an issue but I' looking for a dual band 802.11b/g/n or 802..11ac, whatever is feasible if it really is.

 

Thanks again

morfeas4
