The internet on my laptop continually disconnects randomly. I stay connected to the wireless network but lose access to the web. I suspect it may have something to do with my Pi-hole which is also the DHCP server. I have provided traceroute output below... This only happens to my linux xubuntu laptop, no other devices are affected at all.
I'm no networking genius but it looks like xubuntu is looking for a local IP address and this is causing the problem....
Have tried changing the DNS address in resolve.conf but that did nothing. Have read this could be an Ubuntu bug....
Manually disconnecting from the wireless and reconnecting resolves the issue temporarily.
When I have internet available:
