Wifi Card Upgrade for HP Omen 15t-ax000 CTO (ENERGY STAR)

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have a relatively old HP Omen 15t-ax000 CTO (ENERGY STAR) which I purchased in 2016. I was hoping to upgrade the Wi-Fi card on the unit to a newer version. Currently, it has an Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265NGW wireless card which supports 802.11ac, Dual Band, 2×2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0. I wanted to upgrade it to a newer variant that could have better signal retention, thus having a better signal strength upon installation. 


I am not very familiar with this domain of Wi-Fi chipsets and thus am not sure which one should be purchased based on factors like - Compatibility with my PC, better speed upon installation, better signal strength, etc. I think the module is replaceable in this HP Omen Laptop but I may be wrong and thus I would appreciate any help in this regard.

Upgrading wifi cards is an experiment because HP does not release any info regarding which notebooks have BIOS whitelists and which don't.


Most notebooks such as yours that were made in 2014 or later do not have BIOS whitelists but a handful of them do.


So we can only rely on feedback from other forum members who have tried to successfully or unsuccessfully upgrade their notebook's wifi cards.


We get very little feedback.

I don't have any info on wifi card upgrade results for your notebook's model series.


You can physically remove and replace the wifi card in your notebook.


If you want to experiment, then I suggest this wifi card for must get the non-vPro version of any Intel wifi card you install.


Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro   HP part # L35282-005


You should be able to find this wifi card on eBay.


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