I have just bought new hp notebook 17-x014nm (i3). It was free dos so I installed win7 64bit. Friend of mine (since I'm an amateur) installed bunch of drivers and it all seemed ok (except problems with spontaneous changing display graphics, I was told because it has AMD & Intel graphics, or something like that... but he fixed it)
Now I see that wifi connection is extremely slow - when I try to download it's 70/80 kbps, although signal quality is excellent and speed is reported 48 Mbps. I tried it on other network, it's the same. And this new laptop (8GB RAM, 256 SSD...) is supposed to be much better then the old one, but the old one was much faster. Could it be something with wifi driver? Or any other idea how to fix this, please?

thank you for being interested in my problem.
My first step was to update the drivers, which I tried using device manager. It says I've got the newest drivers.
I also tried the link from hp support, but for my model of laptop only windows 10 OS is offered, not win7.
I don't know how to find the specs for my wireless card, it's not in the specs on the link you mentioned.
I don't know if this can help - hardware ID for wi-fi adapter (Realtek RTL 8723BE) is:
