  Realtek RTL8723BE drops connection until reboot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Lenovo B5400 laptop with RTL8723BE wireless module. The internet connection constantly getting lost after a random duration (usually after 20-30 minutes). The NetworkManager applet does not recognize it (still looks like i have a connection), but when I try do disconnect and connect again, there is only one useful information I can find in dmesg:
  "wlan0: deauthenticating from [ap mac address] by local choice (Reason: 3=DEAUTH_LEAVING)"
  Reinserting the driver (modprobe -r rtl8723be and modprobe rtl8723) used to be my only workaround, but it does not work anymore and now I have to reboot.

  The following improves performance, but I am still encountering some minor performance issues while playing online games (random lag spikes):
  sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf
  options rtl8723be ips=0 fwlps=0
