Yes mine is a HP D7t- 70000  JBric never left a message if it worked or not. I to have the same laptop and was doing the same thing. Going to up grade From Hybrid HDD to SDD and upgrade the wireless card and upgrade to Win10. Window 10 was offered to me when I placed my order for this laptop. I opted out and went with Win7. To bad he never posted back if it worked or not.

@Buzznow 

 

Your machine could be built before 2015 the chance to replace new wifi adapter is very slim to none. I'm using the following adapter for my 8 years old machine

You can find many similar around and cheaper too.
