Hi. I am just a fellow Ubuntu user, but I am afraid this bug report is most likely not something anyone could solve, because so many different chipsets and issues are being discussed here (I assume this is also why no developers felt inclined to touch it so far).
I very much recommend that anyone still experiencing wireless issues should (look for, and if none exists) file a new bug against their wireless driver, and anyone with Ethernet issues should (look for, and if none exists) file a new bug against their Ethernet driver. Your drivers will usually be listed in the output of one of these commands: lspci -knn lsusb You are also welcome to check back with community support to check whether a fix (or a workaround) is already available for your very issue, or just to get help with filing a bug report that is specific and can get handled more easily. https://ubuntu.com/support/community-support If TylerKinkade's issue (where both Wireless and Ethernet disconnect at the same time, on a now supported Ubuntu version) persists then it is more likely a platform (hardware / mainboard / ACPI / firmware) specific issue and should be treated as such, affecting Inspiron 5567 with this specific Ubuntu version (was 16.04.1 originally). -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to network-manager in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1666432 Title: Internet drops every few minutes on wired and wireless connection Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Internet drops every 1-30 minutes when connected via wired or wireless (i.e., this is a problem on both wired and wireless) even though connection icon indicates the computer is still connected. Disconnecting and reconnecting via the connection icon resets internet temporarily until the next time. Dropped internet is discovered with "The site can't be reached" screens in Chromium, or error messages when downloading/updating in Terminal, or missing connection in Ubuntu Software app, or stalled syncing in Insync application (occurred even without Insync). Internet drops more frequently on wireless than on wired. It seems to disconnect more frequently with heavier internet use (e.g., downloading multiple files, opening several webpages in quick succession). This is a fresh install (yesterday) of Ubuntu 16.04 on a Dell Inspiron 15 5567 (dual boot). It occurs when running Live CD as well though. Ethernet and wifi both work without randomly disconnecting in Windows 10 on the same machine, and ethernet and wifi work on other machines running Ubuntu and Windows with the same router, so it is not a hardware or router issue.
