I'm relatively new to Ubuntu, and I'm having some issues with my wireless internet.
When I boot up Ubuntu, it connects to the internet fine and I'm able to use it. But, sometimes after a while it randomly stops working (can't open new links or refresh current web pages). It says that I'm still connected. When I disconnect, it doesn't disconnect immediately, and when I try to reconnect it won't no matter how many times I try. The only way I can reconnect is to restart my computer, and I do not have access to Ethernet wire connection to try to bypass the issue.
I do not have this issue when I boot my computer into Windows 8.
I have tried deleting that wifi connection and adding it again (as suggested by one of these threads), but that did not help.
My output for the:
lspci -knn | grep Net -A2
command in terminal is:
01:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:b723] Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:2231] Kernel driver in use: rtl8723be
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
