WiFi disconnection after last upgrade

Hello everyone!
I work on a lenovo ideapad and since installation of bunsenlabs I used to lose my wifi's signal. I searched the forums and I found the following solution:

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

Until a week ago everything was working fine but after the last bunsenlabs upgrade I have the same problem. I run again the same command in case it was deleted because of the upgrade but I still keep loosing the signal and I cannot find again my router without a reboot.

Are you sure? That looks like an Ubuntu forums kind of solution -- we prefer not spawning unnecessary processes on these boards:

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf <<< "options rtl8723be fwlps=N ips=N"

Or for ksh:

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf <<!
options rtl8723be fwlps=N ips=N
!

But I digress smile

Oh dear, that shouldn't really happen in a Debian stable based distribution hmm

Which kernel are you using?

cat /proc/version

That wireless device is troublesome, we have seen this over at fdn:

An alternative driver is available here:

The ArchWiki suggests trying the antenna options:

# /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf
options rtl8723be fwlps=0 ant_sel=1 # or ant_sel=2

Re: WiFi disconnection after last upgrade

After four days of continuous uptime I have not met any disconnection, but I have not altered anything. Maybe there are the ghosts of the code.. smile
But still I have in use the command that I posted and it works. I don't know if it is from an ubuntu forum or else.
