Best Answer

There is a Ubuntu forum post here wireless disconnects periodically (RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN Controller (rev 10)) which deals with your problem however I would try this first

rmmod r8192se_pci


modprobe r8192se_pci hwwep=0

if this doesn't work then reboot and everything will be back to normal if it works then you can add it as a permanent fix to /etc/modprobe.d/realtek.conf

and add this line

options r8192se_pci hwwep=0 

Hope this helps
