When connecting my Dell XPS13 laptop to a wired network via a Dell WD15 docking station, I’m unable to use the internet.
I’ve identified that it’s a DNS issue and dnsmasq is misbehaving. Killing dnsmasq (which automatically starts a new process) solves the problem temporarily.
The problem doesn’t occur with a wireless connection. Note that the laptop doesn’t have a build-in ethernet port. A wired connect is always done through the USB-C port.
Disabling dnsmasq would be a workaround, but I prefer not to do that.
enxd481d72d354a Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr d4:81:d7:2d:35:4a inet addr:192.168.224.125 Bcast:192.168.224.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::8bdf:9a83:50e9:c4b4/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:5143 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:1329 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:1399042 (1.3 MB) TX bytes:405167 (405.1 KB)
How can I solve this, without disabling dnsmasq altogether?
