upgrading network card

HP Recommended
pavilion 17" E117DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can anyone help me to upgrade a network card?

I currently have an HP Pavilion 17-E117DX    Product - F9J38UA

The laptop equipped with a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n PCI-E card. The problem is very slow on wifi connection with 2.4 ghz band. ( I have  Asus -AC1700 Dual Band Gigabit Router )

The laptop has 2 antennae. Black wire labeled as 1 and White wire labeled as 2.

I want to upgrade a card that can pick up 5ghz band. I really don't care about Bluetooth connection. I just want to have 5ghz band so the speed will be faster.20201028_202846.jpg20201028_203305.jpg

Does anyone have suggestions for a dual-band network card that will work with this model?

Hi:

 

Since your notebook has an Intel core processor, this card should work just fine...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

You should be able to find plenty of them on eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

Thank you for the information,

But I have one more questions to ask you.

I searched on eBay and Amazon by the HP part numbers but I noticed that the same Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0 but on the label, different SPS numbers will it matter? 

SPS 710661-001

SPS 784639-005

You're very welcome.

 

Get the one you see with the SPS # of 710661-001. 

 

That matches the HP part number I posted.
