#StackBounty: #network-manager #ethernet #budgie Issue with Ethernet dropping Connection Irregularly Ubuntu-Budgie

Bounty: 50

I have been running into intermittent ethernet connection issues using a custom build, Ubuntu-Budgie 64, system.

I have gone through so many of the other conversations about applying fixes via NetworkManager and various other methods I’ve seen through the threads, but nothing is working. My ethernet connections connect and then, without disconnection notifications, the connection randomly drops. (and today after a reinstall, a few ‘disconnected’ notifications did appear when the connection randomly dropped).

I’m out of ideas to go through with system configurations. Ifconfig shows everything working correctly (without dropped RX), and I have a WiFi, plus 2 ethernet ports (1 from the main Motherboard and the other as an added addition. I haven’t checked only WiFi yet, but both ethernet ports do the same thing…drop connection intermittently without notification.

My motherboard is a Zenith Extreme from Asus… It holds an AMD Threadstripper and 2 Gigabit ethernet connections (one is directly from the motherboard, one is (i think) a pcie adapter into the MB, it plugs in the same way).

I have also ran through the threads about known bugs with Ubuntu ethernet connection issues, but I have done all I can do but I am still lost :/, the ‘fixes’ aren’t working correctly.

My final solution is that somehow my ethernet in the office is running into issues, it works perfectly fine through a Window Pc using the same switch connected to my Ubuntu-Budgie instalation… But this seems less likely.

Any suggestions would be super helpful, please give me some pointers, I have not been this frustrated with Linux since I started, and I have never had this issue.
