At the moment i boot the old kernel 4.18.x where i get an network connection, i believe it is somehow related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1654858

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2018-12-24 20:46:52 UTC
Since you point to bug 165858 I assume you have a realtek ethernet controller? There indeed is an issue with realtek ethernet controllers in 4.19, this is being discussed in bug 1650984.

Bug 1650984 comment 62 has a patch which is believed to fix this, hopefully we will have a kernel update with that patch available soon, but I'm not sure any updates will be done before the Christmas Holiday is over.
