Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter not working

I installed Fedora 26 on a new HP Laptop, however the in-built WiFi card from realtek isn't working at all. I don't even see the WiFi device in the network settings.

As far as I understand - it is a driver issue, I am unable to find out the driver for this.

It is a composite Bluetooth/WLAN adapter. Bluetooth seems to work fine with the stock drivers. The laptop's ethernet controller is also from realtek but that works seemlessly.

dmesg:

[    1.803973] usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=b009
[    1.803975] usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[    1.803977] usb 1-4: Product: 802.11n WLAN Adapter
[    1.803978] usb 1-4: Manufacturer: Realtek

lspci:

03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device d723

lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:b009 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
