[Bug 1574622] Re: RTL8723AU No WiFi after reboot


I'm having similar problems. In 15.10 wifi worked just fine, but after
upgrade to 16.04 it does not work at all. I have the same messages in

  RTL8723AU No WiFi after reboot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After rebooting the system, the wifi is not initialized correctly.
  dmesg lists [   14.132275] usb 2-5: Firmware failed to start

  However, after complete shutdown and startup the chip works just fine.

  I was using 14.04 before and this chip has always been kind of dodgy,
  requiring a kernel module from github for some time.
