hp envy 17, need a dual band wifi card for 2.4 and 5G

Product Name: HP Envy 17 Laptop
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I currently have a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter and want to upgrade to a dual band card that supports 5G.  Which card will work the best with my computer?  I saw a post on your website with this option noted below but want to make sure it works with my computer before I buy it.  Below is what I found on one of the forums on your website.  However, I am not sure if this will work since it says it will not work with HP and my computer is an HP.

 

Bplus: Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2x2 AC+Bluetooth HMCPartner; Bluetooth half Size Module      

 

Please know that this card is the universal version, it will work on all the laptops except Thinkpads/ Lenovo and HP For half size mini pci-e slot, Not for IBM Lenovo and HP machines.

  • Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* for 802.11ac, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* a/b/g, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED* n, WMM*, WPA*, WPA2*, and WPS, WPS 2.0, Protected Management Frames, Wi-Fi Direct* for peer to peer device connections

  • Bluetooth Dual Mode Bluetooth* 2.1, 2.1+EDR, 3.0, 3.0+HS, 4.0 (BLE)

Hi,

 

What is your HP Envy 17 Laptop ?  Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:

From my understanding, the chance to upgrade wifi card for laptops built before mid 2014 is very slim to none, higher for after mid-2014 laptops.


Regards.

Thank you for responding.  When I get home tonight after my meeting, I will get that information off my laptop and get back with you.  Hopefully, I can upgrade the card.  Otherwise, what are my options?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, your machine was guilt around mid 2013 therefore the chance to upgrade wifi card is very slim to none. This machine is a CTO machine and there are few options on page 4 of the second manual of the following link:

 

     http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-ENVY-17-Notebook-PC-series/5387628/model/5388095/manuals/

 

there is an option on the following link which supports dual band (the last one):

You may want to try, the chance is 50/50.

 

Regards.

Thank you for the response and for the options.  Where do I purchase these products?  Through HP?  I tried calling Broadcom and they laughted at me.
