Tengo que reiniciar el portátil para que se vuelva a conectar y vuelve dura el tiempo y se cae...quisiera que me ayudaran a arreglarl.

English Translation:

I don't primarily speak English, I'm using a translator. I really like the operating system. I installed the operating system on a laptop from a friend, and I have problems with the wi-fi. I connect to the network, and connected, but after 15 minutes it falls, and does not connect anymore. I have to restart the laptop and the problem recurs. I also see that the battery lasts for 62.5% (4 hours 100%). The laptop is a lenovo G50-45. I appreciate your attention and your cooperation, thank you very much.

This is a known issue with certain Atheros wifi adapters, affecting many models, including the Lenovo G50.

First please run the following script (taken from Ubuntu Forums) in terminal:

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info && \
chmod +x wireless-info && \

This will create a file called wireless-info.txt, please paste the infos in hastebin or similar and link it in your original question.
