I have been using EOS as an OS for a year now. I love it and I will never switch back to Windows but I lack a lot of knowledge in Linux that I have on Windows when it comes to troubleshooting problems and fixing them.
Since a week (maybe longer) I’m experiencing random disconnects from the Internet. I see those disconnects for example:
On YouTube because it randomly says “It seems you are not connected to the internet. Reconnect?”
When I browse with my browser I sometimes get “Network Change Detected” instead of that the website opens
When I download a file I get the error " Failed - Network Disconnected"
Has someone an idea what could cause this or which log files I could look into that has some useful information? This issue is really annoying and the only other “fix” that I know would be to setup EOS from scratch…
What I don’t really understand is that if I use some tools to check my connection over a longer period of time (ping via terminal, some bash script that constantly gets the google index.html or an online tool that constantly pings a service) I can never see my connection drop or that there are any issues. I also don’t have any problems watching live streams, play multiplayer games or taking part in Teams calls.
I only see the problem while downloading or browsing the web… really strange… I hate problems like this -.-
Changed the ethernet cable but that didn’t fix the issue. After some research I disabled IPv6 and the issues stopped. Sadly this is only a “work around” and I still don’t know what actually causes the issue.
