    network wifi card

    I've noticed that my wifi card in my vivobook x540sa is not working fine sometimes.

    Is a realtek

    Code:

    For WI_FI USB dongles are much better than any integrated chips :
    They can be placed in strategic places far from the interference generated by the computer.
    They can easily be removed in case of suspected hacking.
    They can be used on several devices .
    They are quite cheap.
