After upgrade from 28 to 29, network becomes unstable but i am not able to find any error in kernel log. Surprisingly, ifconfig show no error in network stats.

Ping output to another machine in local network shows missing packages
PING 192.168.1.130 (192.168.1.130) 56(84) bytes of data.

lspci output (only 1 card is used)
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)

I tried the following methods but none of them worked
 - Disable firewall
 - Change RX and TX size via ethtool
 - Downgrade kernel from 4.19 to 4.18
 - Use USB network card
 - Disable NetworkManager

Hardware is unlikely to be the issue as there is no problem with Ubuntu 18.06 (Live USB)

Your interface does not appear to make always linux happy: https://blog.kylemanna.com/hardware/i... You could try using intel drivers https://downloadcenter.intel.com/prod...

The firewall has nothing to do with such problems. Besides that, a couple of questions: 1) Are you sure the cables and switches are ok? 2) How do you know it's not the other computer dropping packets?

1) Cables are switches are OK. I had no issue when running Ubuntu on the same machine 2) I disabled firewall on the other machine. I can't see any reason for it to drop packets

The active NIC is I211 with ibg driver. It has been working for the last two years until i upgraded to fedora 29.

Actually you have overruns, not dropped packets. Even with another card, it seems. Check out the system buffers with grep . /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp*mem and try increasing them. If not effective you should file a bug to bugzilla.

There is no overrun with USB card. Now I suspect it has no thing to do with network. It's getting worse. I'm experiencing intermittent freeze. When the screen is locked, it takes several seconds to respond to mouse or keyboard.
