I have a wireless internet connection and whenever I use Steam it usually cuts off. Plus whenever I use Bit-torrent it generally cuts off too. I moved closer to my router but it still happens. I heard that there is some connectivity issues already in Ubuntu 13.04 but I never found an answer to resolve it. I heard you need this so here you go.

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvA Wireless LAN Controller [10ec:8171] (rev 10)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1467]
    Kernel driver in use: rtl8192se
03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller [10ec:8136] (rev 02)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1605]
    Kernel driver in use: r8169

Help would be nice

what you can do is check if your wi-fi card does need a (sort of) driver. because ubuntu uses one driver for all kind of cards. i had to do this on my asus n55sf laptop. you have a rtl8191SEvA card from Realtek the download click here

choose the second linux table because this one is for the rtl8191SEvA card.

i do not know how to intall it or place it in the correct folder.

maybe somebody else could help him with it
