HP ENVY x360 - 15-bp110nf

Hi,

 

I believe it's possible to replace the built-in Intel network card (wifi and bluetooth) with a newer one that supports wifi 6.

Are there tutorials or guides showing how to perform such an upgrade?

 

Thanks!

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

The wifi adapter removal and replacement procedure can be found in chapter 5.

 

HP only offered one model Wi-Fi adapter in your notebook's model series and that is the one your notebook has installed now.

 

So...if you want to experiment with installing a Wi-Fi 6 card this is the one I recommend you try.  It must be a non-vPro card.

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro  HP part # L35282-005

 

You can find this model wifi adapter on eBay.  Search by the HP part number.

An Intel AX201 wifi card definitely won't work.

 

The one I selected for you has the best chances of working.

Thanks for the swift response!

 

Since I'll be embarking on this experiment, should i go one step further and try and upgrade to wifi 6E with the AX210?

Available on ebay as well as HP part # M27269-0050A?

 

Thanks

You're very welcome.

 

Personally, I wouldn't take the risk but that is up to you.

Glas to have been of assistance.

 

Please post back and let us know how your notebook's Wi-Fi card upgrade project went.
