Not sure what hardware you are talking about but the majority of WiFI

their firmware.

I assume you haven't tried very much wifi hardware. Realistically, the
of wifi support is still terrible. The best thing to do is try to buy
something known to be supported, but that's relatively difficult for most
people because the name on the box generally has nothing to do with the
chips inside the box.
Can you please list some unsupported chips in addition to these specific
Realtek ones?

It has been suggested to me to buy the external USB wifi dongles, while this is fine if the device is pretty much flush or perhaps only 5mm out from the side, anything bigger risks it being caught or knocked, which will not only cause damage to the dongle but also the laptop it's self,

In that light our choices are perhaps more limite
