I've recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a Lenovo W540 Thinkpad, and I am having issues with my wireless network allowing network traffic. The /var/log/syslog and journalctl -xe output during the problem is as follows.

For some reason, as long as I keep a constant ping going to something like Google or Bing, or even my network gateway, I don't get the whoopsie issue, and can continue using my device as intended. When I turn off the ping, the network connectivity goes out after ~30min or so, it varies a lot.

I'm not sure what else to search for or show for information, so please let me know and I'll make edits.

As per the reference : https://gist.github.com/okapies/de0d08f9e3c8bcb2b76a33b68f62a48c

This might be Kernel issue:

Try to reinstall the current linux-header

I hope this will solve your problem.

Wifi card going to sleep

To save power many wifi cards will go to sleep to save power. In some cases the card will not wakeup from sleep: 16.04 LTS wifi connection issues

To summarize the solution in the accepted answer:

  1. Get details of your PCI wireless card by running sudo lshw -class network

  2. Get your card model info according to the product line. For instance, as you can see in the question description it says product: RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter so the model of my card is RTL8723BE

    Or product: RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller so the model of my card is RTL8101/2/6E

  3. Give the permission sudo chmod 755 /etc/pm/config.d/

  4. Open or create config and add SUSPEND_MODULES="rtl8723be" (replace rtl8723be with your own model number)

  5. Then run echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=N" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf

  6. Finally restart your system.
