[Bug 1574622] Re: RTL8723AU No WiFi after reboot


In my case it is a Yoga 11S but they use the same (bad ;() wifi chip.

Thanks for digging into the module and submitting the patch. I hope
there is some way this patch finds it way into my system ... not
possible for me to build the module myself.

  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.
