Hello there I have a HP pavilion DV 6 6016TX, I'd like to upgrade to a dual band one , but can't find a suitable WiFi card. Please could anyone suggest a suitable WiFi card and where I can find such a card. Many thanks in advance.

Your machine was built around 2011. Due to the whitelist you can't use newer wifi cards/adapters. The list on page 67 of the manual does NOT have any card which supports 802.11ac.  You can use USB options




In March 2020 ago, for testing, I bought the following wifi card for my 11 years old machine




Unfortunately my machine uses different format, not M.2, physically won't fit therefore I went to the shop and swap to the following one (I did not have to pay more, they are same price):




And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) with the 1G wired on same machine.
