My Lenovo Ideapad G50-70 will automatically disconnect from the Internet at random moments on 14.04. The network will first just stop working without any warning, and after a while, it will disconnect by itself. The strange thing is, I can't manage to get the computer back online without restarting the whole computer; it will not be able to connect to the network at all. Simply turning wireless/networking off and back on doesn't help at all. I've tried following old instructions to update drivers (as shown here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2080326 ), but it didn't help.

It would be awesome if somebody could help me out! I really don't want to use Windows 8 instead. :/
