Hi. I've recently come in to posession of a Pavilion DV6-6B02AX and I'm looking to do some upgrades.

I'm after a wireless card that will connect to a 5GHz AC network. What would the model number be for a replacement card?

@ReptilianRascal Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to upgrade the wireless card.

 

(HP does not recommend upgrades as the device is equipped with parts that perform at its optimal performance and also, the upgradeable parts listed in HP articles are purely for your ease, though the decision to upgrade will be at your own discretion)

 

I have checked the manual your model have 802.11b/g/n 1×1 WiFi

 

A few things to remember are mentioned below: 

The compatibility of your router with the wireless card, 

If the wireless card is 1x1: supports 2.4 GHz and below - slow connection and download/upload speed, 

If it's 2x2 or more: support 5 GHz and above - Fast connected and speed. 

 

However, you can try to purchase External wifi.
