Hi ... I would like to replace the WIFI card Realtek RTL8822BE ac 2 × 2 MU-MIMO + Bluetooth 4.2 M.2 PCI-e WW of my notebook AC with an Intel AX200NGW card, Wi-Fi 6 11AX WiFi Module 2 x 2 MU- Mimo Dual Band Wireless Card with Internal Bluetooth 5.0 Wi-Fi Adapter Support Windows 10 64 Bit, M.2 / NGFF
It's possible ? TNX

Since we don't have any feedback from anyone who tried to upgrade the card to one not listed in the service manual, we cannot confirm that an AX card will work.
However, if you want to experiment and let us know...this card would have the best chance of working...
Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro HP part # L35282-005.
You should be able to find this model card on eBay by searching by the HP part number, not the model of the card.
Or you can by it directly from the HP parts store at the link below...25.14 euros.
Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure...

Hi, I also tried my hand at upgrading my Wifi card with an Intel Ax. The modification was successful by installing an Ax 200 as indicated by Paul Tikkanen (very knowledgeable and provided me with useful advice). For more curiosity I am attaching the link of my resolved question: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/Update-Wifi-Card/td-p/7965817

I replaced the Realtek RTL8822BE card with the Intel AX210 and everything works perfectly.
It immediately recognized the bluetooth, while the WIFI did not. I had installed the drivers before mounting the card, then I reinstalled the WIFI drivers, rebooted, ran the test in the BIOS which recognized the WIFI hardware and in windows 10 I found the various wifi networks present.
