    Wireless On Lenovo Yoga 13

    Hi,

    I am having problems running wireless on my lenovo Yoga 13, I have followed some threads but with no luck.

    It would be very helpful if someone could describe the needed steps in some details to solve this as I am new to Ubuntu.

    Some info:
    uname -r
    3.8.0-19-generic

    lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:1724 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

    Try this !!

    Download source (zip) from here...... https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au

    Extract to home folder.

    In the terminal type and hit ENTER

    cd rtl8723au-master

    make clean

    make

    sudo make install

    sudo modprobe 8723au


    You will have to repeat these steps every time you upgrade your kernel.

    Thanks.
    When you download the zip file, drag and drop it to your user directory instead of Downloads. Then right-click it and select 'Extract here.' Proceed as above.
