Ubuntu – I can’t see Wifi networks. I have realtek wireless card, model: RTL8723BE

driversnetworkingrealtekrtl8723bewireless

I upgraded Ubuntu from 15.04 to 16.04.

I have tried reinstalling rtlwifi-new-dkms

Wifi problems with rtl8723be in Ubuntu 14.04

Also, I disabled Secure Boot in BIOS, which help reactivating the wireless card. But I still can't see the available WiFi networks:

No WiFi networks appearing

For the command sudo lshw -C network I get
