I have issue on Ubuntu 17.04, Internet works fine and after a few minutes, sometimes hours suddenly it stops working. Also sometimes when I run the system in the morning, the internet is not working from the beginning.

In both cases I have message in chrome browse:


Worth to add, I can ping ip adress. For e.g ping wp.pl - not working but ping - working.

Also internet in this time working fine on other devices - android smartphone, desktop PC with OpenMandriva or even on the same device but on other OS - Fedora 25. So look like this is bug in Ubuntu 17.04, but I can't fix it. For Ubuntu 17.04 help me only restarting router...

I trying fix it like in this topic: DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG error in Ubuntu 14.04

but any solution not working for me.

    Please edit your question to add the result of the terminal command: dmesg | grep -i dns If the result is lenthy, post the output here and give us the link: paste.ubuntu.com – chili555 Apr 22 '17 at 13:04

I think this link may help you.


sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf
sudo ln -s ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
sudo resolvconf -u

Then refresh your browser or others.

  • psst. dont forget cp /etc/resolv.conf ~/ so that resolv.conf is backed up – JSON Oct 15 '17 at 5:07
