in the past month or so I've started experiencing extremely frustrating DNS issues, whereby I often see a 'connecting message in the browser for 10 -30 seconds before a site loads, and also often have connection timeouts.
After much googling I tried this suggestions Remove (or comment out) the below line from /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf: dns=dnsmasq
It is definitely something related to my Ubuntu install because another PC running windows on the same network has zero issues. but it has made no difference. Can anyone offer me either a solution or some good troubleshooting steps?
