Problem with activating Ethernet

Hello, I have a problem activating Ethernet on Fedora 39 Workstation with a GNOME 45.4 environment. After booting the system, and account login, Ethernet is not activated, while the router works correctly on other devices and the LAN port is connected to the computer. Instead of the normal icon of the Ethernet, GNOME shows the icon below:

Only when I use the command sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager, the Ethernet is activated.

What could be the problem?

Hello @viktorp ,
Welcome to :fedora: !

Before restarting the network manager service after initial login with no network working try typing nmcli in the prompt of a console. This should give a verbose human readable output of the devices that NetworkManager is seeing and configured for. Also their (devices) status.
Also, it would be helpful to know the hardware you’re on, so if you have inxi inxi -v 2 for including info on networking devices.

My inxi output using this command sudo inxi -v 2

Use "nmcli device show" to get complete information about known devices and
"nmcli connection show" to get an overview on active connection profiles.

Consult nmcli(1) and nmcli-examples(7) manual pages for complete usage details.

it shows that it’s connected, however, when I want to load a page from the internet, it doesn’t work…
