  Wifi disconnects every few minutes

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This problem occurs on my new HP 15-AF014AU notebook. I installed 14.04
  several weeks ago, and noticed the WiFi dropping out. I moved to
  14.10, which seemed initially to fix it, but after a few hours it dropped out
  there too. I moved to 15.04, and the problem persisted.

  My wifi card is a Realtek RTL8723BE, and the driver for that card may
  be the source of the problem.

   I found a work-around described here:
  which seems to be working.

  Also I can get it going again by disconnecting then reconnecting via the "hidden network" menu
  option. This sometimes takes two or more attempts.

  A proposed fix given on one discussion group is to add a /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf file containing
  "options rtl8723be fwlps=0", then restart. That seems to have stopped the periodic
  dropping out, but I still need to do the hidden-network connect when coming
  out of suspend.
