Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Wired Ethernet stops working and is bridged by virbr0. No internet access is available in either. No VM's are used in this bug.

Using a Realtek onboard NIC
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
The fix is to reload the driver via 'sudo rmmod r8169' & 'modprobe r8169' then everything works as it should.
Forgot to mention kernel version:
