I have installed Debain-9 in my newly bought HP - Probook 455 G6. But it doesnt show wifi connection.

lspci shows Network Controller : ... RTL8822BE ... WiFi adapter.

I followed instruction here and tried using apt install firmware-realtek and using .deb package.

But still its not shown. Should I use these kind of 3rd party package for this?

Spec : Debian-9 on SSD

Edit : after @GAD3R request for lspci -knn |grep Net -A3

The RTL8822BE firmware has been added to the backports-ed firmware-realtek package (it is not available in the main package) .

You can install it after adding backports to your sources.list:

printf "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main non-free" \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-backports.list

The install firmware-realtek package:

apt update
apt install -t stretch-backports linux-image-amd64
apt install -t stretch-backports firmware-realtek
