intermittent WiFi on 16.04LTS

By Ninja Chris

I’ve just installed Xenial on my home desktop and the internet is very intermittent, showing “there is no internet connection” when I try to load a page. If I disable/enable networking it comes straight back up. Internet works fine on Windows 7. I’ve updated the rtl8192cu drivers for my Asus Nano USB-N10 N150 WiFi dongle. nmcli dev shows that I’m connected to the network but I can’t SSH from my laptop to the desktop – “connection refused”. route shows an empty table.
