all the above should be supported by F25 onwards as support is provided by the newer kernel and firmware modules shipped with fedora. Debian 8 'Jessie' uses LTS 3.16 branch kernels which is why those adaptors don't get recognised

Re: Laptop WiFi comparability question

just means a specific version of the firmware modules may need applying dependent on the card fitted by hp. either way, the OP could get it working using the pointers on that site since they have another PC to download and save to usb for transfer with if a cable connection to the notebook isn't possible
