Upgrading the Internal Wi-Fi card

HP Recommended
HP 15 Notebook PC

Bright suns!

I have an HP 15 Notebook PC - Product Number 4JC25UA#ABA and I would like to upgrade the Wi-Fi adapter to 802.11ac. Which adapters are compatible with my motherboard (233F), or should I just buy a USB 2.0 adapter for 802.11ac? I have 1Gbps internet speed over ethernet in my house, with Wi-Fi APs that are AC1200 2x2 Wave 2 Wi-Fi that support simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) supporting IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac. At peak, they broadcast about 500Mbps. The current configuration of my laptop allows up to 100Mbps over Ethernet and Wi-Fi with the included 802.11b/g/n card.

Thank you, and may the Force be with you!

Your machine is an HP Notebook - 15-f246wm, its specs


It is an entry level machine, not much I can see from above specs.. Its manual



There is no option for AC wifi on page 2 of the manual and with single antenna. You may be able to use use Intel 3168 or Intel 7260 adapters.


For wired connection, you can use
