Intel Network 7260.HMWG.R Revised WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2x2

Pavilion 15zAB000 Touch
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I would like to upgrade this laptop Wifi Card and was wondering if it will work, the service manual seems to have to antenna connections, but I am not sure if the laptop motherboard would be compatible with this card. Thanks for your input

You have an AMD processor which does not work right with the Intel wifi cards. The one you want to use is the Broadcom AzureWave 802.11ac. However, your laptop might only have one wireless antenna in which case you cannot really upgrade the internal wireless card. 

 

You said you have the Service Manual so I will not post it. The only way to know if it has one wireless antenna or 2 is to disasssemble it far enough to inspect. The manual might show 2 antennae, but many models and particularly AMD models with 802.11/b/g/n/ cards like Realtek and Ralink only have one.  If you need more help post back.
