Post subject:  Realtek RTL8723BE WiFi-Driver

I am a guy in the end of the 50s checking out the Kolibri OS after it has been mentioned in the Heise-Forum.
Running it from CD currently I tried to establish a network connection via the inbuilt RTL8723BE network module but unable to do so.
Is there a chance to get that module running? As I know it is a combo module (Bluetooth and WiFi).
I would highly appreciate to use only the inbuilt WiFi module as it is part of my HP laptop although finding the drivers for both (BT and WiFi) would save me a lot of time.

I am not able to write my own programs although I work with computers for approximately 20 years with Linux (SuSE, Ubuntu, Knoppix) and Windows (3.1, 95, 98, ME, NT 3.51, NT 4.0, 2k, XP, Vista, 7, 8.0/8.1). Never found a way to understand the languages and keep them in mind. Nevertheless I am still open and curious to find working software that is easy to work with, fast and reliable without reserving plenty of HDD or Ram space.

If there is no chance to get that module running without bigger endeavours I would like to consider buying a cheap USB WiFi according to the Hardware support list.

Sorry, but currently there is no wifi support at all.

Thanks for answering.
As I am no experienced programmer, I am unable to estimate about the endeavour to include WiFi support for network adopters. Possibly someone can explain me, whether it would be a chance to include the WiFi driver to the OS or is there any hardware layer necessary for including that has to be programmed before?
