sudo apt-get remove rtlwifi-new-dkms
sudo apt-get install git build-essential git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new cd rtlwifi_new make sudo make install
Reboot and then
sudo modprobe -rv rtl8723be sudo modprobe -v rtl8723be ant_sel=1
Test wireless, if no change then
sudo modprobe -rv rtl8723be sudo modprobe -v rtl8723be ant_sel=2

When you find that one works better than the other
echo "options rtl8723be ant_sel=X" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtlbtcoex.conf
Xis 1 or 2- whatever resulted in better performance, in the case of Swapnil Sharma it would be
Then the parameter will be remembered following a restart
echo "options rtl8723be ant_sel=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtlbtcoex.conf
