Since there is only one Wi-Fi antenna wire connected to your notebook's RTL8723DE Wi-Fi adapter, there is only one model Wi-Fi adapter you can easily upgrade to without requiring a complete disassembly of your notebook including the display panel to properly run a second antenna....
Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.
You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express.
I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.
On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.
Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the Wi-Fi card removal and replacement procedure...
