    No firmware? Let's get some. Please download the attached to your desktop. Right-click it and select Extract Here. Now open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
    The file may already exist. Please proceed.
    Code:
    sudo cp Desktop/rtlwifi/*.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/
    Now, we unload and reload the driver so it sees the needed firmware:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r rtl8723ae
    sudo modprobe rtl8723ae
    Now we check for any improvement:
    Code:
    iwconfig 
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Now let's do some housekeeping:
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    And let's check:
    Code:
    cat /etc/modules | tail -n5
