How to log ethernet connection failures?

Post by 222fbj » Tue Nov 21, 2017 2:41 pm

A user says their (Mint PC) ethernet connection drops intermittently. I would like to see a log or report showing if/when the ethernet port cannont connect to the router/Internet.
:?: Is there a simple method to log connecetivity or other pertinent info?

btw - I am a home user, not well versed in linux commands but happy to work on this if I can get pointed in the right direction.

Mint 18.3 Mate on an Intel NUC i5; Dual boot w Win10
Also have an old AMD PC with Mint XFCE
