Hi:

 

40 MBPS isn't that bad for a card that has a max throughput of 72 MBPS.

 

Your notebook only has one antenna cable connected to the Broadcom card.

 

There would be only one dual band wifi card you can upgrade to that works with one antenna cable...

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

The only place I have been able to find this model is on eBay.

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

The card has the same throughput as the BCM43142 on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

On a dual band wireless N router, it would have a maximum throughput of 150 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

 

Below is the link to the service manual.

Hi:

 

Any of those listed are good as long as they are advertising that part number, and there is only one antenna terminal to connect the cable to.

 

It doesn't matter what model notebook they came out of.
