DNS resolving fails after adding usb wifi dongle

Bug Description

I noticed when a USB wifi dongle is plugged in and I disconnect the builtin one (Ubuntu 16.10), that resolving of DNS didn't work anymore.

I could ping for example google.nl on IP, but not resolve the name.

After some searching I found the issue seems to be caused by dnsmasq or systemd-resolved, the first being the most likely.

I disabled dnsmasq in NetworkManager and restarted it and stopped dnsmasq and everything works as expected.
