[Bug 1484399] Re: Network connection drops on RTL8723BE after some time


Julien Olivier, as per http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice
/HP-Pavilion-15-p100-Notebook-PC-series/7234915/model/7489492 an update
to your computer's buggy and outdated BIOS is available (F.42). If you
update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate
does it change anything?

If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, and the information above is provided, then
please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

  Network connection drops on RTL8723BE after some time

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On my laptop, the WiFi connection works well for a few minutes, then
  stops working completely, although nework manager shows the icon as
  "connected", but I can't ping any address... If I press the "airplane
  mode" button ON et OFF again, the network comes back, and then, a few
  minutes later, the problem occurs again.

  options rtl8723be fwlps=0 swlps=0 ips=0
