    Question Samsung NP300E5A Wifi Problem ( Realtek RT8111)

    Hello Everyone,
    I recently installed 13.04 from a usb and i have a problem with my wifi. After 2-3 seconds of connecting to it i lose my connection and i have to disable and reenable networking a couple of time to get it work properly. Is this a driver issue ? What can i do to fix this as a newbie. Any help is much appreciated...

    To me it looks like Realtek RT8111 is a ethernet card.

    Please run this and paste the output here.

    Code:
    lspci | grep 'Network'

    Try plugging in an Ethernet cable and running "Additional Drivers".

    Also, from a quick Google I get this thread:

    It's rather old though, so be careful if you choose to implement anything.

    It's an application. Open the dash and type "Additional Drivers", and then click on the icon of a motherboard.

    It couldn't find any additional drivers.
