I don't have the same chip as you but I found on internet here and there that your chip can go into sleep state when it is not suppose to.

When you don't have wifi, you can try this:

sudo rmmod rtl8723be && modprobe rtl8723b

But the problem will occur quickly later... A workaround is to disable the sleep feature of the driver:

echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf

I did rmmod and modprobe. Still all the networks are not shown. Only the networks which have high strength are showing. In Windows, I can see all the networks.

So at least there seems to be an improvement, you can now see some networks. A french guy explains here that the wifi still disconnects randomly for a few seconds... He solved the issus by compiling and installing another module from this repository.

Sorry, I can't help you more on this matter.

I suggest tearing open the case (carefully) ;) and installing an Intel wi-fi card. It's quite easy and you'll be happy with the results. That's how I solved my realtek wi-fi problems in my Toshiba.
