Is there any wifi strength related bug on Loki or Ubuntu 16.04? I've been experiencing low strength and therefore low speed. I'm on a fresh Loki installation running on an HP Laptop with a Realtek RTL8723BE network adapter.

As a side note: This was one of the adapters that suffered from connection drops on Ubuntu 14.04 after sleeping them and/or after x amount of time (solved by manually updating the driver) but as non of those issues happen now I don't think it would be solved the same way.

This is the most problematic network adapter, in order to fix it you need to perform a extensive research, some solutions works for an amount of people, and some not.
