'Temporary failure in name resolution' Internet issue - Eggmonkey - 11-11-2019

I received my Pinebook today and I'm very impressed as it is a great machine.

One issue though: After usually around 2-3 minutes connected to the internet the internet drops on the device and I get 'temporary failure in name resolution' error when I try to ping a website. The net is clearly still up for the rest of my devices so I'm trying to get to the bottom of this issue so I can make pinebook usable. I'm sitting fairly close to the AP so I don't think it is like the 'weak wifi card' issue another user seems to be having

Any one have any ideas? Just thought I would ask before I troubleshoot through half a dozen possible fixes.
Maybe someone else has the same issue and we can learn something. If I fix it I'll write here.

OK, so resolv.conf had nothing in it, so I made it writeable with sudo chmod o+r /etc/resolv.conf, rebooted then it automaticlly added some hosts and the net has stayed up for 10 min so far

Actually, I think the wifi card is overheating and crashing. Internet drops after no more than 15min.
Wireless adapter disappears until a reboot.
var/log/syslog shows no panic, need to do more research but this issue looks like a theme after reading many other posts.

Any chance you had your CPU set to 1.99GHZ? I encountered a similar issue when I first got my Pinebook Pro and it stopped happening when I left the CPU set to Ondemand. Not sure if this is of any help, but I figured I'd speak up in the off-chance that this was a factor.

If you do something with the cpu, then also ondemand sets it to 1.99GHz.

I suspected that issue would be the case so I have tried it on low, medium and high CPU speeds but have the same problem. Takes 5-15 minutes for the net to drop out and takes a reboot to start working again.

This is why I thought DNS config issues.
