Replacing the Realtek with a supported wireless card may be as easy as
undoing a plate on the bottom of the machine, unclipping the old one and
clipping in the new one. They are pretty cheap to buy on ebay.
Your wireless card is probably mini pci-e:
An older style is mini pci.
It may require removing the keyboard which is a bit harder but quite
doable. Generally you get into a laptop by carefully levering off the
cover at the back of the keyboard. A service manual is a big help and
can often be found with some googling.
