Can I upgrade My wifi card?

HP Recommended
bs180tx
Linux

Currently I have a HP-bs180tx which has only one issue that it's wifi card (RTL8723DE) only 2.4GHz(802.11 b/g/n) with bluetooth 4.0 which has result in my laptop only supporting 45 Mb/s(This might also be an issue of my laptop not using 802.11n ) for my connection of 500 Mb/s.On searching for driver or wifi card upgrade i was not able to find someone who had tried this for my model (although I was able to find for the same card not model).I currently using the following drivers by smlinux as rtlwifi_new by lwfinger seems to removed.

 

Since I unable find any other working driver I am planing to upgrade my wifi card to something that atleast 5Ghz for better experience and so that I can use it with ease for some while.I want to know if I can change to better internal wifi card while preferably keep my current card as many hp laptop have an option of adding 2 one antenna support wifi cards and if it is possible fix my probably driver issue.

Kernel:5.7.0-2-amd64

@The_Fossette

Here is my product number:3BN02PA

Model:HP-BS180TX

The probably supported card for any HP laptop with a single antenna

1.Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported)
2.Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9461 802.11 AC 1x1 WiFi + BT5 Combo Adapter (non-vPro) (MU-MIMO supported)
3.Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + BT 4.2 Combo Adapter
Can  I change to any one of these? or do I need to use a different network card?
