I set up a Ubuntu server by Ubuntu desktop 18.04.1 LTS + apache2 + PPPoE. I find that I got disconnected frequently. I ping the server and the requests are timeout for about 30 seconds every 5 minutes. And I think it is not the apache issue since this issue is still reproduced after I stop apache. I also set the "automatic suspend" to off and "blank screen" to never in Settings->Power but I still encounter this issue.

I try to connect the network cable to another Windows 10 laptop and ping the laptop, I don't encounter this issue on the laptop.

Which Ubuntu settings would cause this issue?
