Accidentally uninstalled Realtek Wifi from laptop

Hi and I hope all is well with everyone!! This is literally my 3RD TIME coming back to ask this question. I have a HP 15-F222WM 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop and I accidentally uninstalled the Realtek Wi-Fi adapter while cleaning out my computer. I literally have class on MONDAY so you can understand my frustration. A very helpful person tried to help by sending me these links to install:




But after downloading and installing the first link, it did nothing at all. Now the SECOND LINK worked for 2 or 3 days and when my computer restarted for updates, no more WiFi. I tried reinstalling everything and at this point I am desperate. Please help
