Wireless Adapter Upgrade

HP Recommended
HP 15-f009wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Ralink wifi/bluetooth wireless network card keeps bumping me off wifi intermittently.  There are no current drivers available that are Windows 10 compatible (most recent driver is from 2015).  I want to upgrade to a newer card but I'm not sure which one out there would be compatible with my model of laptop, which is the HP 15-f009wm.  I was looking at purchasing the Intel Wireless-AC 7260HMW Network Card Dual Band 802.11abgn+ac 2x2 Bluetooth 4.0.  Does anyone know if this will be compatible with my model?  If not, can you suggest one that will be?  Thanks for any help!

Hi:

 

Your notebook will only have one wifi antenna cable connected to the wifi card in there so you won't be able to upgrade to a dual band wifi adapter.

 

An Intel wifi card won't work in an older model such as yours with an AMD processor.
