Upgraded my laptop to 24.04 today. I notice that if I have the laptop connected to ethernet with wifi turned off I can't get out to the internet. I am able to connect other machines on my internal network with the wired ethernet connection. If I turn on wifi I can get out to the internet.

output from ip r

default via dev enp2s0 proto static metric 100
default via dev wlo1 proto dhcp src metric 600 dev enp2s0 proto kernel scope link src metric 100 dev wlo1 proto kernel scope link src metric 600

I found that I could ping with just the ethernet connected. Which led me to suspect a DNS problem. The IP address for the ethernet connection is static. I set the DNS server to in the network settings and it worked fine after that. So maybe some config file got blown away in the upgrade.
