Hi, I'm Danny.
I'm wordering what is the item of "1g2a6av". It says Description is "MISC No WLAN/No BT".
I bougth and installed WLAN card, but was not working. Laptop couldn't find WLNA card.
How can I configure WLAN setting?
Please advise me.

If the notebook has a whitelist, it will block any model Wi-Fi adapter from working.
HP does not release any information on what notebooks have whitelists and which ones do not.
Generally, most notebooks that were made from 2014 on do not have whitelists.
I can't find a service manual for the notebook as it is not listed on the support page, but this link indicates that either the AX201 vPro or non-vPro should have worked.
But as I replied yesterday, the CNVI cards usually will not work unless you are replacing one that failed, not one that was missing in the first place.
Unfortunately, I am completely stumped by this and don't have any other suggestions for you to try other than returning the notebook for one that comes with built in Wi-Fi or use a dual band USB Wi-Fi adapter with Bluetooth.

Unless your notebook came from the factory with an Intel AX201 Wi-Fi adapter, it won't work.
Try this one instead...
Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro HP Part # L35282-005
Since I don't work for or represent HP, I would not be able to answer your first question.
Apparently, HP sells some notebooks in that model series that come without Wi-Fi adapters.

Thanks for your reply. I tried Intel 9650 WLAN (I don't have AX200) insteady of AX201 as soon as I got up, it didn't work unluckily.
Intel 9650 is compatible with Elitebook 850 G8 as I found web site. Why it doesn't work? I think the root cause is related to "1g2a6av". Is item 1g2a6av some equipment for blocking WLan? or is it "just meaning of NOT-Include Wlan/BT", or there is some blocking in the BIOS firmware software.. I don't know the reason..
Do you have any idea to solve this?

You're very welcome.
You can't use any CNVIo cards (9560AC, AX201, AX211) in your notebook--even if the manual indicates that they are supported.
They only would work if they came installed from the factory and I don't know exactly what makes them different from a standard M.2 wifi adapter.
This link provides information that state they only work on certain motherboards and processors.
If you have any other M.2 cards laying around like a 8260, 7265, those should work.
But if you need to buy a card, get the AX200 which is equivalent to the AX201 except it is a standard wifi adapter that works in multiple notebooks that support M.2 Wi-Fi cards.
I don't think there is anything blocking the installation of a standard (non-CNVI) Wi-Fi adapter.
I'm thinking the product number you have doesn't include Wi-Fi.
Some facilities do not allow the use of wireless networking for security reasons, and I guess the easiest way to prevent someone from using Wi-Fi would be to supply models that only support ethernet.
