I am using a HP laptop with windows dual boot. Moved to Ubuntu 3 days back. Not able to see my home wifi network (SSID) and if I see sometimes, the connection is not stable.

$ lspci -nn | grep 0280
0d:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:b723]

I have now edited the rtl8723be.conf files to have these following 3 options but no avail

$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf 
options rtl8723be fwlps=0
options rtl8723be msi=1
options rtl8723be nohwcrypt=1

Someone please help, I won't be able to use Ubuntu without this feature

  • If you're using Ubuntu 16.04, please take a look at askubuntu.com/questions/847392/… for a possible solution Jun 18, 2017 at 6:38
  • I tried it didnt work, it frequently disconnects, even settings->network shows the wifi is out of range, whereas for any other device it works perfectly well Jun 18, 2017 at 7:07
