I'm brand new to linux and I am currently running Ubuntu 16.10.
My problem is that my wifi just will not stay connected at all. When started, it will stay connected for about about 3 minutes MAXIMUM before the internet just completely stops working.
What's weird is that up top I can still see that its connected to the wifi, but the internet just stops working completely. If i use an ethernet cable, I don't have this problem at all; but i need to use wifi because my router is way too far away from my pc.
So far the only thing that fixes it is disconnecting from the network, and then reconnecting and itll work again for about anywhere between 1-3 minutes before it just suddenly stops again.
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE : I'm dual booted with windows 10, and on windows I absolutely do not have this problem whatsoever, the wifi works just fine. Any help is greatly appreciated
