    I have a Toshiba M500 laptop, running Ubuntu 16.04. I operate wirelessly with modem and router. Just today I started getting message: Disconnected from Wireless. This lasts about 3-4 seconds and connection is established again for maybe up to a minute. Seems to be cycling more often as time goes by. Help anyone?

    Sounds like a bug or unstable driver. Isn't this still beta (16.04)?

    I tinker and fine-tune and mess myself up regularly. That's what I did here, with a wireless setting. Found I had wireless and wireless-2 conflicting when I meant to have only one working. Duh! Problem solved. 16.04 is close to final (I think around 4/20). Thanks for the reply.
