I have Realtek RTL8723BE Wi-Fi Adapter installed on my laptop with single antenna.

 

I can upgrade my antenna with dual antennaes that is not a problem but will INTEL 8260NGW or 8265NGW supported by my laptop ?

 

Drivers for Intel,Raltek as well as Broadcom is available for this model.

Here is the manual:

 

Service manual

 

On the models with 2 antennae (yours has one you have already figured out) this adapter is made available:

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + BT 4.2 Combo Adapter 863934-855

 

 

 

You want this:

 

 

Form factor is the same. There is no whitelist. As long as you have 2 antennae it will work fine. 

 

The driver is specific to the OS and the device, not the computer. You may need to get the proper driver from Intel and not from the HP site but odds are Windows 10 will just recognize it and activate it.
