I've recently installed 64bit version of kubuntu and science then I've been having issue with wifi. It work great for few minutes and then it disconnects but it shows that I am connected and I have to reconnect. What causes this problem, how to fix it?

Output of lsusb command:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0bda:8178 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8192CU 802.11n WLAN Adapter
  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 terminal command.

  • I do not see any pci wireless adapters. Is it a usb dongle?

You can install a better driver by running in terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rtl8192cu-dkms linux-firmware

and reboot.
