Network slow to resume after suspend

I have noticed recently that my machine takes a while to pick up a network connection after suspend. It can take up to 10 seconds for the network to resume. I’m on an ethernet connection and no issues once it connects.

Any ideas why this might be happening? It doesn’t seem like a big deal but it gets annoying waiting around.

It seems to be related to Network Manager or the kernel. Try linux-lts and see if that helps. If so, it’s likely a kernel regression that will be fixed at some point.

Otherwise systemctl restart NetworkManager will get things running again.
