Will my Envy 17 Notebook take a dual band WiFi , if so what is recommended?

Product Name: Envy 17 Notebook E1P13AV
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Apparently my Envy 17 Laptop only uses a 2.4 wifi adapter.  Can I use a dual band 2.4/5 adapter?

Are both antenas already in the Laptop so I can only change the card?

If so what dual band adapter is recommended?

Please see this thread: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/ENVY-QUAD-17T-J100-wifi-Model-E...

It confirms that your laptop has no whitelist and can accommodate dual band card

But I'll request you to check yourself whether wireless card indeed has 2 antennas before going in for upgrade, just for making sure
