My HP 15 f272 laptop did not come with a Bluetooth network adapter - it has Wi-Fi only. There is only one (1) antenna wire connected to the PCI mini adapter, and a second wire is not visible anywhere.
1. Is it possible to upgrade this laptop's wireless capability to include both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth?
2. Is there a second antenna wire (for Bluetooth) hidden inside the laptop's case?
3. Where inside the case is this second wire located, and is it difficult to get to?

My plan is to replace the existing mini PCI wireless adapter with this one:
Azureware AW-NB107H / 802.11n/b/g WiFi + Bluetooth 4.0 / Half-Size PCI-Express MiniCard (Broadcom BCM43142 (single chip))
The HP 15 Product and Services Guide states that Broadcom BCM43142 is supported.
You did not answer my question regarding a second (white) antenna wire:
Is there a sencond antenna wire in my laptop, and if so, where will I find it?
Please answer the question as posted. If your answer is not affirmative, I will gladly consider your alternate solution. However, I would appreciate a direct answer to my original question as I would prefer to have an internal rather than an external device.
