I have a lenovo y50 with the same card and I constantly keep running into the same problem. The following command always helps me fix that. echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf sudo reboot

This device is known for that. Lets try: echo "options rtl8723be swenc=1 fwlps=0 ips=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf echo 'KERNEL=="wlan0", RUN+="/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 txpower 18"' | sudo tee -a /etc/udev/rules.d/75-wlan.rules Reboot

It looks like you removed iwlwifi module. You need to re-install the kernel. Run in terminal: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-`uname-r` linux-image-extra-`uname -r` and reboot.

As we see, your driver needs but cannot find the needed firmware. Let's try to find and install it. Please download this file on some other computer and transfer it to the desktop of the Ubuntu computer with a USB stick of similar: https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware/archive/master.zip Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.'

Had this problem with an HP dv9000 with a BCM4311 in it. Tried this in the terminal and it worked after sleep to bring the interface back up: nmcli nm sleep false So I just adapted the solution above to use this new string instead of the one that turns it off/on again. So it looks like this and it works great: #!/bin/sh case "${1}" in resume|thaw) ...

If this was interference or weak signal then I would think it would stay at the low speed. It may just be a power saving mode. Try: sudo iw dev wlan0 get power_save If it's on, then run sudo iw dev wlan0 set power_save off See if that helps. Replace wlan0 with your WiFi adapters name.

This could be a driver problem, however, it could simply be interference in your home (another wireless signal etc). There are a few best practises for placing your router in your home; see if any of these may apply: Place router in a central location (centre of your home) Avoid metal objects near your router (microwaves etc) Avoid placing near walls Try ...

Please try this workaround (not a fix): After you boot the system, suspend and wake up. Now check if wifi networks are detected or not. I read this somewhere sometime ago, it works for my hp laptop.

You have to manually set default route or through Network Manager or via CLI. The 2 network should have different subnet, i.e. wlan0 192.168.0.2/24 lan0 192.168.1.2/24 With CLI you can try removing the default lan0 gateway like this route del default gw 192.168.1.1 dev eth0 Then add the default gateway for wlan0 route add default gw 192.168.0.1 dev ...

I had the same issue with the exact same Asus notebook model in Kubuntu 14.04.

I had the similar issue on my HP Envy laptop which has Intel 3165 wifi adaptor card. I tried many work around involving getting the firmware from the git repository also. It helped me for some time but my wifi connection used to go away after 1-2 hours. Finally I looked into Intel's website and they also had mentioned that Kernel 4.1+ is certified for 3165. ...

It seems like a problem with the driver of your wireless card. First step I would do is delete the line you added: sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi-opt.conf This will allow you to edit the file, find the line (`"options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 swcrypto=1 bt_coex_active=0 power_save=0"')and delete or comment it. I'm not sure how to fix the intermittancy ...

Install another driver this way sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtl8192cu-dkms The new version of this driver should improve things. If that will not help, I have another dkms driver in this PPA that should work for sure, but it is older.

You could make some mistakes when installing the drivers. I packed them to PPA, it is easier to install.

do $ iwconfig to see your wireless interface name (a typical name is for example wlan0) Then use $ sudo iwlist wlan0 scanning (replace wlan0 with your wireless interface name) If you can see a list of connections then it is not a problem of driver and you can try to do $ sudo service network-manager stop $ sudo rm ...

First of all, can you connect to any Wi-Fi manually in your Ubuntu system? If your machine is a laptop, you need to make sure the Wi-Fi adapter (or "wireless network") is toggled ON when using Ubuntu. On most laptops there is a hardware toggle that controls this. You may want to check your BIOS settings, too, because there might be a software toggle ...

Try to put the Wi-Fi on ALWAYS ON in the BIOS. In my experience this will solve the problem. Good luck!

Canon has their own scanning software ScanGear - I know that there is a version available for the MG2920, but you may have to wait until they produce a version for the MG3222. You could also examine the source code, or the driver for the MG2920, and see if they will work for your printer. The page with links to the source code and drivers is here

In many cases, the issue with "...i'm getting a good connection when im close to the router.. but once i step a few meters away .. the signal drastically drops..." is a sign that the Linux driver is unable to sense and change to the antenna connector that is active, that is, has the wire connected. This is a well-known issue with the rtl8723be. There are a ...

The short answer is, yes you can write entire programs in tcl. tcl is a scripting language like python or perl. The only time you would need to drop to C would be to do something very unusual or where you want the maximum performance. I'd suggest looking at python, ruby or node.js though as tcl is not used very much these days. If you do, a great set of ...

In linux, the command to turn on any network device is: ifup [device] and wireless networking is frequently wlan0, so this command should fix it: ifup wlan0 note: if it doesn't work, try raising the 0 to something higher, but this should be necesarry only in case there are multiple wifi cards.

To quote another answer Several things to try echo "blacklist ideapad_laptop" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf disables the Lenovo driver module, or reset the bios: Hit F2 to enter bios, then F9 to reset, then F10 to save and exit. Your wireless should be working at that point.

Mounting and unmounting only apply to USB devices that have some sort of storage feature that the computer can access and edit. A thumb drive is an example of this. Unmounting just ensures that nothing is using the drive when you unplug it, avoiding file corruption. AFAIK, USB wireless adapters have no accessible storage on them, meaning there's nothing to ...

Your wireless adapter is blocked. You can unblock it by running sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf <<< "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4" Reboot after that. If that does not work try 1,2 or 3 instead of 4.

You can install a new driver. I just updated the PPA to the latest version. Run in terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtlwifi-new-dkms Reboot after install. Remove this driver by: sudo apt-get purge rtlwifi-new-dkms sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi
