Hello. I cannot get wifi networks or connection on kernels over 4.9.0.6. Up to this kernel the connection works perfect.  I just have to add the "options ant_sel=1" to /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf. I am using the one in the Sid repository but I have the same results with the ones in the stable and testing repos.

The real module involved in the problem must be /lib/modules/4.9.0-6-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtlwifi/rtl8723be/rtl8723be.ko

Even though it is working on this kernel, I cannot upgrade to any other because it will not work.

The modinfo of the driver is as follow:

sudo modinfo rtl8723be
