HP Notebook - 14-an012au

Hi

I'm planning to upgrade my wifi card since current wifi cannot reach 5ghz signal. Any suitable wifi card with 5ghz for my notebook?

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

I believe that your notebook only has one antenna wire connected to the card in there now.

 

If there is only one wire, then you can only upgrade to this model card...

 

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,

The card will have the same 72 MBPS throughput as the original wifi card 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.

 

If by some chance your notebook has two antenna wires connected to the Realtek card in there now, let me know, and I will recommend a better model card.

 

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