Product: x360 convertible
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have an older wifi router and am going to replace it with a much needed update. Would like to upgrade the wireless card in my HP Pavilion x36 convertible one that supports the newer 802.11ax (wifi 6).
Laptop model: 2ZC82AV
Pavilion x360 Convertible
Is this possible?

What model wifi adapter does your notebook have now?
The parts list show 4 possible options for that product number.
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265
If your notebook has one of the first three, it might be possible since those wifi cards would require two antenna cables in order to work properly as does tha AX200.
If your notebook has the Realtek RTL8821CE wifi adapter then unfortunately you wouldn't be able to upgrade since that would mean your notebook only has one antenna cable.
I can't guarantee the AX200 will work but if your notebook doesn't have a BIOS whitelist which prevents any unsupported wifi card from working, then the card should work fine.
Most HP notebooks made in 2014 or later don't have the BIOS restrictions but there are a handful of models that do.
If your notebook has one of the first 3 wifi cards...
You must get the non-vPro version of the card, so this is the one I recommend if you want to take a chance on upgrading.
Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro 160 MHz HP Part # L35282-005
You can find this card on eBay. The HP parts store has it on back order.
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
