Swapped wifi card on my Hp omen

HP Recommended
Hp omen 15t dc000 cto
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently, I've come to the realization that my realtek wifi adapter that my computer came with wasn't really that good. So I decided to buy a new wifi card. I looked up which ones were compatible with my laptop and I bough the ax200 first, I opened it up my laptop and installed it, the latest driver and everything else. But I found that I had some pretty bad connection, like 2 bars whereas my old realtek always had 5, so I changed some settings in the advanced tab didn't really change anything, still slower speed and weak signal, so I thought it was the card. So this time I ordered a intel 9560 because that is the only other card that it is compatible with, fast forward a few weeks, and it arrived, same issue. I'm on a 5Ghz network, I'm not sure if it is just my router or the intel wifi adapters.

Please run a speedtest to see how much you get from your provider to your modem/router

I'm not sure what plan I have for comcast, but comparatively my old Realtek would put out 90-120, I don't really care about upload but download.

The speed actually shows the line from your ISP to the modem. Your modem/router should get 70%-75% of my download speed or around 4 to 4.5MB/sec (Mega Bytes).

 

Do you how much you get in terms of MB/sec ? Please use the original card.

I think my plan is around 300mb/s. So I should swap back to the Realtek card?
