I'm using Fedora 29 and I have just upgraded the kernel to kernel-4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64 via regular update this morning.

After reboot there is no more internet connection. Network manager says "network cable unplugged" . I have a wired connection. If I boot with the previous kernel kernel-4.18.17-300.fc29.x86_64 everything works.

Please find out which network card do you have to see if there is a bug reported, you can do so with this command on the terminal lspci | grep net

This is the output of the command: 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 01)

did you use or other method to install that network card?

No, regular OS install, everything worked out of the box.

In that case you may get fix in the next update and should file a bug on kernel

As @mwiktowy pointed out this is a bug in the kernel

Current workaround:

echo realtek > /etc/modules-load.d/realtek.conf

and reboot
