Question Compatible Wifi module (AX 200NGW or AC 7265) for HP 8315 motherboard ?

Sep 15, 2022

I just upgraded my RAM, damaging my Wifi module. :(:rolleyes:😢All specs below.

Would like to update the module on Wifi6/Bluetooth 5, but not sure, which wifi cards are compatible . :??: 😢

According to post found in HP forums there are two supported wifi cards in the service manual:
  1. Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 802.11 AC 2×2 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (nonvPro)
  2. Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 802.11AC 1×1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (nonvPro)
or you could experiment with the Intel 9260 Dual Band AC card, non-Vpro (can only find them with vpro unfortunately).

Found an Intel 7265:

But would rather install this AX 200NGW to have dual band / 5Ghz / even newer WLAN&Bluetooth. Is that possible? Would AX work as well, or does only AC work?

In advance, thank you so much for your help!!!
