Hello,

I have an HP ENVY Phoenix 850-050 qe with the Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter for a wireless card. This card is only able to support 2.4ghz wifi where I would like to be able to use 5ghz wifi. Is there a way to upgrade the wireless card to be able to use 5ghz? When I look at the motherboard it says it's an hp 2B36 version 2.0 if that helps.  All of my usb slots are occupied, so using a USB wifi adapter is not an option. If it is able to be upgraded, is there a certain type of card it needs?

 

Thanks
