try this in terminal :

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

it'll prompt for root password. once its done, reboot the machine and wifi should be stable

Thanks, your advice was helpful.

I've updated the kernel to the version 4.2.6., and appears works stable, but the issue about the poor signal, still present.

Thanks to both, it worked for me entirely! No connection loss and signal strength excellent. Hp ProBook 430 G2 w/ RTL8723BE WiFi module.
