Sorry, this patch doesn't make any difference - my network still fails. After a suspend/resume my browsers (chromium
and firefox) both fail to open my home page ( The ping time for one of my ISP's name servers
increases from 14-15ms to more than 1000ms, although it after a few pings it does reduce. As the screen grab below
shows, the network does eventually fail
