I swapped out the network card on my HP 17-by1xxx laptop for an Intel ax200. Unfortunately, the laptop only had one antenna connection, so I connected to the "main" instead of the "aux" connection. Could this have resulted in the following problems?

  1. My bluetooth generally doesn't work. Windows detects that I have bluetooth hardware, but I can't get anything to connect.
  2. When I'm trying to connect to the wifi 6 network I have at home, I can see about 10 wifi 5 routers from my neighbors, but I have to wait about 5-10 minutes before I see the my wifi 6 router. Afterwards, I can can connect without any problems, but I'd like to eliminate the wait.

Thank you.

You cannot simply change wifi cards. You must consult with HP for compatibility.

  1. The AX200 is Wifi module supporting 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The difference is that one of the antenna is shared by both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radio.
  2. Antenna 1 (Aux) Wi-Fi 2.4GHz + BT
  3. Antenna 2 (main) Wi-Fi 5GHz.
  4. So, if you have one antenna only, connect it to AUX terminal.
