I got also "invalid argument" issue. Removing /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf didn't help for me. I had to go back to kernel 3.11 and it works. I am done with rtl8723be. I ordered USB Wifi adapter. Shame...

I mean en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_panic caused by rtlwifi. It was only once so far.

I also have longest run without drops, however yesterday I got one kernel panic caused by rtlwifi module. Please share if you have same problem.

one more thing to try rfkill block bluetooth since this wifi adapter shares antenna with bluetooth. It's not a solution if you need BT, but I don't use it anyway.

yes module params was for regular distro kernel 3.13.0-24. BTW, for me rmmod and modprobe does not always work :-/

modprobe -r rtl8723be should do same thing as rmmod rtl8723be since no other module is using it. I am not 100% sure this always works. It worked for me last time I had this problem. I will share my observations here if I find anything interesting.
