* package version(s)
current: linux-4.17.2-1-x86_64

[ 109.471980] DMAR: [DMA Write] Request device [02:00.0] fault addr 0 [fault reason 05] PTE Write access is not set

After the problem occurred I tried to get the network back up again in the following ways:

unloading and reloading kernel module -> no effect
ip link set enp2s0 up -> no effect
unload kernel module before suspend, reload after suspend -> this resulted in the device not showing up in "ip"
dmesg showed these errors:
r8169 0000:02:00.0: Refuses to change power state, currently in D3
iommu: Removing device 0000:02:00.0 from group 6

Steps to reproduce:
use kernel 4.17.2, my network-card, suspend and then start again

Work-around: use previous kernel version.
This task depends upon

It is the same for me, seems kernel issue. 4.14 is working well.

Here as well:

Sorry for the late reaction. But I can confirm that on kernel 4.17.11 the problem has been resolved. All works as expected again.
