The broadband Ethernet connection stops to work or rather stays connected but stops loading pages and showing content on the Internet with a server not found error. The connection information states the Internet is connected with a correct IP configuration but still the surfing problems occur quite frequently and suddenly starts working after few minutes.

How can this be resolved?

On running: sudo lshw -C network
