I want to upgrade the wifi card of my laptop to a 5ghz card. Currently my laptop's wifi card only supports the 2.4ghz.
My Laptop model is HP 15-ab219tx. And having a realtek wifi card rlt8723be.
Can you please suggest the dual band wifi card which support my laptops hardware. I have intel 8265 in my mind. Will it support laptops hardware? buying links are welcomed.

Since your notebook only has one antenna cable, you can only upgrade to this model wifi card...

This card works with only one antenna.
