comment Intermittent internet connectivity
Welp, after turning my computer off and back on, the problem is back, although now it appears the whole network connection is going out; I can't ping my router. This makes my problem a little more generic, so I'll broaden my search for general network failures.

Against all expectations, this seems to have fixed it. Since this was a recent build, I've had the case open (with power disconnected of course) a number of times since I first saw this problem, so this time I unplugged it, tried the power switch thing, and left it unplugged for a half hour. Haven't had connectivity problems since then. I don't understand how this could be related to Internet connectivity in Ubuntu and not Windows, and that makes me suspicious. When I don't understand what I did to fix something, I don't trust that it will stay fixed, so I'm gonna keep a close eye on this.

This seemed like a promising avenue, so I tried it. I checked route when the connection was good, and everything seemed normal. However, when the connection went bad, I ran route and it did nothing for a while, and only came back with results (again, normal results) when the connection came back...
