Mint 19 cinnamon connection problems

I have issues with my internet on mint 19 cinnamon. I frequently get an error along the lines of “bad connection” or “connection reset”.

This occurs on Firefox, Chromium, Steam store and friends, software manager, driver manager, and even when using apt from terminal.

I am wired directly into my router, which in turn is wired into our ONT (fiber modem). No devices on Wifi or ethernet plugged into our router have this issue. It happens with the bundled firefox, chromium, steam friends, and even apt, software manager, and driver manager.

Linux Mint Cinnamon running stock kernel (4.15.0-42-generic), wired connection, rock solid speeds (gigabit down, 100megabit up).

Strangely, “good” connections are not interrupted. I can download large monolithic files (example: My 128GB VM) from the cloud through http with no issues, but while browsing websites I get an error every 3 or 4 sites I visit, including for subdirectories in-site.

I’ve been distro hopping a lot lately before landing on Mint Cinnamon, and this issue did not exist in Arch, Ubuntu, or Manjaro.

The only “abnormality” in my network setup, is that I am using a motherboard with dual-nic built into the chipset, one intel gigbit port and one realtek gigabit port. I leave the intel manually disabled in the network manager with no cables plugged in, since I don’t use teaming. all other network values (dhcp,ip, etc.) remain at default values, usually auto.

Changing DNS servers through my router, modem, or pc makes no difference between using open DNS, google public DNS, and my ISPs default DNS.

  • What’s your question? You will need to provide some more information. What are you doing when you receive the error? What do you do to fix the error once it occurs? Do you get any more descriptive messages other than bad connection or connection reset?

  • Thank you for the clear description of the problem, but can you include any logs in the question so we have tangible data FireFox Log and dmesg would be a start (don’t post the whole thing, but narrow it down to a few seconds up to a minute before and after this issue crops up.)
