  Wi-Fi Realtek 8192E disconnects after a while and fails to reconnect

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  A few minutes after booting my Samsung R580 laptop, the Wi-Fi
  disconnects and it fails to reconnect until I restart the machine.
  This happens with all the 64 bit versions of Ubuntu I tried, from
  14.04 to 15.10. With the 32 bit versions, everything runs perfectly.
  No loss of connection at all, even after 48 hours in a row.

  Here is the output of iwconfig after loss of connexion:

  eth7      no wireless extensions.

  lo        no wireless extensions.
