Public bug reported:

I recently moved my home DHCP and DNS server over to MAAS (2.1.3 from

Since doing so, I've noticed that my wifi connection drops and
reconnects (with corresponding Unity pop-up notifications) exactly
every 10 minutes.

I suppose this is due to the fact that MAAS sets DHCP leases to 10
minutes by default?

Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

Is there a suitable workaround?  Increasing the DHCP lease time?
Using static addresses?  Something else?
