Your machine has one antenna, you can use

 

  •   WLAN module, 11AC INT 3165 M.2 MOW part # 806723-005
  •   Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 802.11AC 1×1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (non-vPro) part # 863934-855
  •   Intel Wireless 9461 AC 1x1 MU-MIMO +Bluetooth 5.0 M.2 non-vPro MIPI+BRI WW with 1 Antenna part # L25889-005

Regards.

Hi, @ogamoga 

 

The first two cards listed above require two antenna wires be connected to the wifi card in order for the Bluetooth to work.

 

Your notebook had to have come with the Intel Wireless 9461 AC wifi card in order for that card to work.

 

Your notebook only has one antenna wire.

 

There is only one dual band AC wifi card where both the wifi and Bluetooth will work with a single antenna wire, and that is 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,

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

 

The card will have the same 72 MBPS throughput as the RTL8723BE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

 

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