having issues with wifi speed using Realtek rtl8723be 802.11 bgn wifi adapter

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am having issues with very poor wifi speed on HP notebook using Realtek rtl8723be 802.11 bgn wifi adapter


Have updated the driver using the automatic search but says best driver is already loaded. 


Any suggestions?

@jfeigel Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are facing issues with Wifi speed.


Do not worry. Let's work together and get this issue addressed.


Here are a few things you need to do, to resolve this issue once and for all: 

  • Disable all firewalls and antivirus programs including windows ten's own firewalls and antivirus programs. 

  • try safe mode with networking to check if the Internet connection is fast there. Try both wired and wireless options. 

  • Link for safe mode with networking is given in my earlier post. Please try that. 

  • Uninstall the existing network adapters and update the bios chipset and network adapters (both wired and wireless) from this link: click here to find and install the same 

  • Please try to change the router's broadcasting channel to another value. try different working channels. that might help for WiFi only. 

  • Try performing a clean boot in windows 10 using this link: Click here for steps 

  • Try this link fixing network connections in Windows 10: Click here 

  • Then create a new user profile and try to connect both through WiFi and using a wired connection. 

  • Then as a last, resort try to perform a system recovery to factory setting and check if this helps after backing up all your files.
