Installing rtl8723be driver for a working wifi

Hey All,

If you own one of those latest Laptops and especially from Lenovo, there are chances that you have Realtek Network controller....

To check the driver your laptop needs:

Issue the command: lspci and grep for Network
lspci | grep Network

If the above command output is:

02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device b723

Then follow the below procedure of installation:

1. First download the file given in the below link:

2. Extract the zip file

3. cd rtl8723be

4. Inside the folder issue these commands:

-> make
-> sudo make install
-> sudo modprobe rtl8723be

5. Your wifi access points should be now visible for login/auto internet.

Thanks and hope this helps you - pitch in your comments.
