    OK chili, this is going to sound ridiculous, but I booted into Windoze and the wifi wasn't working there either! I did that fix garbage that windows 8 does and shut down the computer rather than rebooting (I think this computer has some sort of fastboot -- like in android). I waited 10 minutes, walked into my computer room and fired up the computer... I now have wifi working again on both sides. I guess the hardware was the issue (the Military calls this FM -- ie: f'ing magic -- or maybe its SNAFU ie: Situation Normal, All F'ed Up!-lol). If you'd still like me to run the commands in terminal I'd be happy to. Thank you for your assistance, I greatly appreciate it.

    In one of my many lurid previous lives, it was known as PFM, where the P stands for 'pure.' That same group also often said it's sometimes better to be lucky than good. I'll take a solved working wireless device however I can get it!

    Glad it's working. Have fun!

    Same magic here. After struggling until late I realised that it only works when you shutdown. A reboot doesn't show the wifi networks.

    I didn't have more time to investigate and I don't know if it's somehow related to the poweroff and reboot bug present in the Toshibas. This other problem is apparently fixed in kernel 3.8.

    I guess it's a matter of wait for the fixes and use the workarounds for the time being.

    Re: problem realtek 8723 driver

    I discovered that if the wifi is manually disconnected from the panel then it works after reboot.

    So what I did is to create a simple script and place it in /etc/rc6.d

    #! /bin/sh

    echo "Killing Wifi upon reboot"
    /usr/sbin/rfkill block 1


    This is of course temporary until the bloody driver is supported in a new kernel but it makes the trick until then.

    Cheers

    Seeing the exact error will help us greatly. 'Error 2' could be any number of things. Please post it.

    Re: problem realtek 8723 driver

    OK, so I'm sitting here in front of a brand new laptop, on which I've just installed Xubuntu 12.10, and the built-in wireless doesn't work, so I'm having to use an ethernet connection.

    lspci tells me that I have the Realtek 8723 controller fitted, so judging by this thread I have problems!

    I've tried downloading, compiling and installing the drivers, detailed earlier in the thread, and after modprobing, can see the drivers installed. Dmesg also shows:

    firemare: rtl8723fw_B.bin
    ieee80211 phy0: Selected rate control algorithm 'rtl_rc'
    rtlwifi: wireless switch is on

    Also wlan1 is up:

    wlan1 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off
    Retry long limit:7 RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr:off
    Power Management:on

    I've now run out of ideas and would welcome some assistance to free me of being tethered with a cable to the net, please!

    Jim

    We wonder why it is wlan1. Was or is there a possibly conflicting wlan0? Do we need to blacklist something? What does this tell us?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep rtl
    rfkill list all
    sudo iwlist wlan1 scan
