When I installed Ubuntu I realized that I cannot connect to my home Wi-Fi at all, though wired connection worked perfectly. After a bit of googling I followed these instructions and it worked!
However, now my notebook uses my Wi-Fi for 5 minutes maximum. After that connection is lost. I need to reconnect again by switching off and on Enable Wi-Fi panel.
There was not such problem in Windows and all my devices works well with this wireless network.
If I should attach some output results from Terminal, please let me know, as I really do not know which commands to run.
UPDATE: wireless info
- Asus X550C
- Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

dmkspackage but re-compiles the driver for every newly installed kernel).
dkmsdoes not work. However, I followed these instructions, but replaced last string with
sudo make dkms. Here is what I got. Maybe I should use
--forceflag on that?
--force. The messages mean that the driver is already included in Ubuntu's stock kernel and you shouldn't need to install any additional driver for that device.
