My HP Notebook is equipped with a Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11bng WIFI card which is limited to a speed of 72 Mbps. Which card should I replace it with to be able to benefit from the 1 Gbps speed needed to take advantage of the fiber.

Hi:

 

You will need to open up your PC and see how many wifi antenna cables are connected to the Realtek card in there now.

 

With that model card, there is normally only one antenna wire, which limits your upgrade possibilities to this card only...

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express,

The card will have the same throughput as the 8723BE/DE on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, but on the 5.0 GHz wifi band, it will have a max throughput of 433 MBPS when you have an AC router with an excellent wifi signal strength.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

If your notebook has two wifi antenna cables connected to the card, you can experiment with this model instead.

 

It should work, but it may not.  I can't say for sure.

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 ax 2×2 + Bluetooth 5.0 MU-MIMO M.2 2230 non-vPro 160 MHz PCI-e   HP part # L35282-005

 

You should be able to find the Intel AX200 card on eBay.
