Hp Pavilion 15-B109EL Sleekbook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello to everyone,

I want to upgrade the wifi card of an HP Pavilion 15-B109EL Sleekbook.

This notebook currently has an Atheros AR9485 802.11 b/g/n and I want to replace It with a 802.11 ac wifi card, however I don't know If there are any 802.11 ac wifi cards compatible with that hp model.

Can anyone shed some light on this matter?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi:

 

Try this model...your notebook needs to have two antenna wires attached to the Atheros wifi card in order to have the card work correctly.  So check that first before buying the Broadcom card.

 

Dual band AC:  Max 867 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

 

Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combo HP part #  724935-001

 

You should be able to find the above wifi card on eBay.   Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.
