How do you diagnose your Internet dropping out under Ubuntu 16.04?
I have a Dell 5520 laptop, and it’s Internet (both wired and wireless) randomly stops working for seemingly no reason. I don’t think it’s my router, as no other device on my network exhibits this problem. Also, simply turning my wifi off and on, or unplugging and then re-plugging the ethernet cable immediately fixes it, so it seems like it’s some local bug with DHCP or the networking driver.
As you can imagine, this is quite frustrating, and breaks a lot of automated systems that need Internet access.
How do I diagnose this? Running
cat /var/log/syslog |grep -i network finds:

Clearly, that shows there’s some sort of network problem occurring, but I’m not sure what. How do I figure out what’s going on here?
