Network manager cannot find any internet connections after sleep phase

Hello Garuda users.

I have been facing this particular problem since the installation of Garuda linux, have read threads and tried to solve problem on my own.

I've read this thread:
[SOLVED] No network connection after suspend (Page 3) / Networking, Server, and Protection / Arch Linux Forums
and they said that solution is to delete the /etc/modprobe.d/r8169_blacklist.conf .

Since this solution is from 2018 - 2019 I am scared to not mess things up even more.
Reason behind posting this is to know whether this solution is good or is there any different way for garuda-linux OS to solve it.

PS: During Garuda installation I had some firmware issue which I resolved with
Git Clone URL: git clone
Source:AUR (en) - mkinitcpio-firmware.

There was no firmware errors, since then but felt like it was useful information to add.

Sorry for my poor choice of words. I'll definitely try to improve and make more readable threads in the future.

There are several interesting solutions for your WiFi card in the forum.
Some consist in changing the driver, but this one seems really fit for your issue:


I tried it and everything went wrong. Thank god garuda has snapper tools or I was without internet connection for some reason. I will tell step by step what i did.

  1. sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/network-restart.service
  2. copied this is nano
     # cat /etc/systemd/system/network-restart.service
     # systemctl enable --now network-restart.service
     # systemctl start network-restart.service
     # systemctl stop network-restart.service
     # systemctl disable --now network-restart.service
     # systemctl status network-restart.service
     # systemctl daemon-reload
     Description=Network Suspend/Resume Service
     ExecStartPre=-/usr/bin/sudo -u $USER /bin/bash -lc 'nmcli networking off'
     ExecStart=/usr/bin/sleep 1
     ExecStart=-/usr/bin/systemctl stop NetworkManager
     ExecStart=/usr/bin/sleep 1
     ExecStart=-/usr/bin/ip link set wlp3s0 down
     ExecStart=/usr/bin/sleep 1
     ExecStart=-/usr/bin/modprobe -r rtw88_8822ce

     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/modprobe rtw88_8822ce
     ExecStop=/usr/bin/sleep 2
     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/ip link set wlp3s0 up
     ExecStop=/usr/bin/sleep 2
     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/systemctl start NetworkManager
     ExecStop=/usr/bin/sleep 2
     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/sudo -u $USER /bin/bash -lc 'nmcli networking on'
     ExecStop=/usr/bin/sleep 1
     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/sudo -u $USER /bin/bash -lc 'nmcli r wifi off'
     ExecStop=/usr/bin/sleep 1
     ExecStop=-/usr/bin/sudo -u $USER /bin/bash -lc 'nmcli r wifi on'
  3. Saved and exited.
    4.systemctl enable --now network-restart.service
    5.systemctl start network-restart.service
    6.systemctl status network-restart.service
    which gave me this output:
systemctl status network-restart.service
○ network-restart.service - Network Suspend/Resume Service
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/network-restart.service; static)
Active: inactive (dead)

after all of this internet connection died. I tried everything again even deleted file, but internet connection was still dead. As I mentioned above idk what happened or What did i do wrong but snapper tools saved me there.

So your problem is solved? You restored a snapshot and now internet works fine?

No i was back from where i started. After i did those steps Internet completely died. Snapper tools just made me back to the point before I did all of this and internet came back .

Idk i'll try this steps again and if something goes wrongs I'll jump back with snapper

I did it again and now everything went right internet didn't die. Now I'll suspend my computer for 30mins and if it works I'll mark it as solved. Thank you!


Thank you very much! Appreciate you. It worked like magic.
I am using this distro for like 10days, instantly fell in love with it and now also with its community. Thank you again!
