I've experienced a few issues with my current wireless card (The range is rather small, even compared to older laptops, especially in buildings such as schools), the performance is subpar in my opinion, and I would like to change it out for something better I've my current wireless card is a RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter, I believe it is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Realtek-RTL8188EE-80211-WiFi-709848-001/dp/B011JFX2C2 I'm relatively new to computer hardware, but I've researched the standards (802.11 /a/b/g/n/ac), and I know what they mean. My laptop is an HP ENVY 17 Notebook PC (E8A23UA#ABA), and I've used lspci to get that the wireless card attaches by a mini PCI-e port. I'm pretty sure that I want a newer generation card, probably an /ac, variant with a wide range, but I'm not sure how to compare different wireless cards, or which ones I should consider getting. Is there anything I should be careful of that new people might not know about when shopping for wireless cards? Do you have any recommendations?
