Wifi Card Upgrade from 2.4 to 5 Mhz

HP Recommended
Pavilion 17" N7J15EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi  , I have an Hp Pavilion Notebook 17" Product number N7J15EA#ABU  , serial number 5CD5366H0F  .

I recently changed my broadband router to a dual band router that works better on 5 MHz . unfortunately I have discovered that my laptop does not work with 5G ready router and indeed  in the networks available I see only  the 2.4 MHz option to connect.  Troubleshoot and recommendation is upgrading WiFi adapter to a MHz card. What is the WiFi adapter/card model  I need to buy to have the possibility to connect to my MHz WiFi network .

Many thanks in advance ,

You can upgrade to this card with a direct swap.  This card 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.

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8723 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.


Or you can purchase a USB dual band wifi adapter.
