Hi:

 

You can find them in used but tested and working condition on eBay by searching by the part number.

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=792202-001&_sacat=0&_sop=15

 

I would suggest that since you have to replace the card, you may as well upgrade it to the dual band AC model with bluetooth.

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

The only place I have been able to find this model is on eBay.

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=L17365-005&_sacat=0&_sop=15

The card has the same throughput as the RTL8188EE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band with an AC router, it has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS.

 

On a dual band wireless N router, it would have a maximum throughput of 150 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

That's why I suggested that model AC card.

 

It was designed to work with only one antenna cabe.

 

If you look at the pictures of the cards for sale,  there is only one terminal on the card to connect the antenna cable to.
