Bug Description

My netwok just randomly stops working sometimes and even restarting the networking service or the computer 10 times doesn't help until I boot in Windows, then boot in Ubuntu again, cross fingers and hope it works.

This only started after doing a partial upgrade from the 14.04 I initially installed to whatever 14.04 I have now, uname -a says this:

This seems to be limited to some networks only. It's probably a DHCP configuration issue.
