There are wi fi adapters available at a very cheap price. They should work out of the box. If they don't work, can be returned.
One example

Is there any support for Realtech rtl8822be cards. Specifically wireless support. Ethernet is working fine but no wireless.

Actually with an ethernet connection you can try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dkms git
git clone -b extended https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
sudo dkms add ./rtlwifi_new
sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6
Reboot
