Pavillion 500-c60
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The internal wireless card in my 500-c60 desktop works only with a 2.4 GHz signal (802.11b/g/n). I want to be able to use the much faster output from my dual-band 2.4/5.0 GHz router, using the newest wireless protocol (I think that's 802.11a).

 

Can I simply swap out the standard wifi card for better one? Or, since there's no external antenna with the original card, can I replace it with a USB 3.0 wifi adapter with an external antenna?
