I have Ubuntu 12.04 and MSI MS-16GC with Realtek 8723ae and here is my problem. It works with some networks every time (eg. my home network) but it worked with eq. network form my phone (HotSpot) and network on my university but now doesn't. I've tried to do the thing from here but I have this

make -C /lib/modules/3.8.0-35-generic/build M=/home/korek

What I have to do to get it working every time?

Update your version of the software. Try version rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0007.0809.2012 (Note the last part is the date, which is later than yours). Even later versions may exist, but the above should work.

Here's a similar problem with suggested solution: Wireless card Realtek RTL8723AE-BT driver not compiling on Quetzal

It still the same. Even Errors are the same – user2255510 Mar 26 '14 at 18:51
