Posted by: jlucasp25 Feb 9 2017, 10:18 AM

Hi everyone, im new here, and im studying computer sciences.... i'm using Debian Linux 8 Jessie on a ASUS F541U that has a Realtek Wifi Card, i've installed the drivers as i saw on the web (realtek package file, i believe) and the wi-fi works, but after sometime it stops working, if i turn off the Wifi, it doesn't even connect to any network... If i restart the PC it returns to normal, but after sometimes it becomes as it is... It's a cycle and i dont wann restart the pc everytime i become without internet... Thanks for any help

Download the following: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1454843/+attachment/4438588/+files/rtl8723befw.bin and copy it to '/lib/firmware/rtlwifi/' and reboot the lap.
then disable the sleep feature:
$ echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf

Let me know how that goes smile.gif
Thanks, yoUrNIX
