Hi:

 

What model wifi adapter does your notebook have now, and have you opened up the notebook to see how many wifi antenna wires are connected to the wifi card in there?

 

If it is a single band wifi card such as the Broadcom or Realtek one, it may only have one antenna wire, and you would be limited to this dual band wifi/bluetooth card...

 

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

 

You can find this model on eBay, Ali Express, or the HP parts store in the UK...12.05 pounds

HP Parts Store - HP Computer Parts - HP Printer Parts - Compaq Parts

 

The card will have the same 72 MBPS throughput as the original wifi card on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

 

If it has two antenna wires connected to it, let me know, and I will suggest a better card than that one.

 

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