Since the latest dnf update on 2-23, the netstat -r takes several seconds to come back and the network is not responsive for awhile and the Ethernet connection pauses. Resetting the network works for a short period (10-15 seconds) and then starts again. Tried using both manual IP/DNS and dhcp, same issue.

Try 'netstat -nr' first and see if that's quicker; it should be. Using '-r' means netstat will try to do DNS lookups on entries in its tables so netstat is likely waiting for DNS timeouts for each lookup; using '-n' tells netstat to just respond with numeric IP addresses and skip DNS. The problem could be bad routing or it could be a bad DNS configuration -- can't really tell from the info provided. If 'netstat -nr' is quick, try to ping the DNS nameservers by IP address, and if that doesn't work then routing is a possible suspect.
