Want to upgrade my laptop to support both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

HP 15 f272 laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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?

Hi,

 

I think your machine is the following one:

You can use one of the following device

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.

 

Thank you.
