I'm a novice to ubuntu. I'm looking for help to make configure this wireless? It shows very feeble network-strength despite being juxtaposition to the router and won't connect to internet for longer than few seconds. Ive tried followings from various pages at askubuntu.com:

Attempt 1 :

$ echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf

Attempt 2: (mentioned at same above link):

sudo rmmod rtl8723be && sudo modprobe rtl8723be

Attempt 3:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential git
git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
cd rtlwifi_new
sudo make install
sudo modprobe rtl8723be

Attempt 4:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Did a reboot after every attempt but nothing seems to work. Can someone please point me to a thread where it may have been resolved successfully, or provide a solution?

Thanks for every help.
