this problem has happened for a while now, started with kernel 4.14.1.
this issue seems to happen when a website is struggling with a chocking issue at their end. how ever at my end it intermittently disconnects and i am unable to use the connection at all until next reboot.
i sometimes find my modem router has crashed with such problem. need to reboot that too. i have a NetcommWireless NF10W. i have not changed the firmware it came with, and can't find any new firmware. so i am a little confused to what this problem might be.
i am enclosing several files to help diagnose this issue. let me know if you need more information.

this doesn't seem to happen anymore. since installing firewalld, for some reason it prevents the connection from being disconnected.
