WIFI/BT module upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 14-v016la Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)
Linux

Hello everyone.

 

My notebook doesn't support 5 GHz AP and I need it to work. I tried to look for a device whitelist to upgrade the BT/WIFI module buy I found nothing, anyone know what kind of module it's compatible with my requirement?. I really need to upgrade that module.

 

I'm working on Linux but if the module it's not compatible with it I can change to Windows it doesnt mater.

 

Best regards 

Carlos Orta

Hi:

 

Your notebook shouldn't have a BIOS whitelist.

 

If it has two antenna cables connected to the wifi card in there now, you can upgrade to this card...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

You can find the card on eBay.  Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure...
