laptop model: HP 15 Notebook (r121ne)
Wifi adapter: Realtek rtl8723be
Windows 10 Home 64bit
Wifi card stopped working. I'm not sure if that happened after updating my BIOS.
Here's Link for driver that I have installed:
I bought the same wifi card (rtl8723be) and replaced it. But still doesn't work. Bluetooth is working but wifi doen't work.
I'm using Windows 10 64 bit and also Ubuntu 16.10, Wifi doen't work on both OS.
I want to know if there any alternative suitable wifi adapter is available for this Notebook. (Intel would be preffered)

Here's the Manual, see p. 61.
Replacing the wireless card is not easy but you say you have already done it once. Was there one or 2 antennae? If only one your options are very limited to 1 x 1 cards. You have no whitelist so the system will boot and run with any wireless card of the same form factor.
The Ralink and Realtek cards offered by HP are not really good hardware but about the best you can do if you have a single antenna.
This is what you want to get, the Holy Grail, if you have 2 antennae:

Understand all wireless cards run better with 2 antennae it is just that a 2 x 2 wireless card really NEEDS 2.
In this case, you really can't do any better than the wireless cards HP offers in the Service manual.
