I've just been discussing the same problem over the last few days. Have a
read of the "What does 18.104.22.168 refer to?" thread.
I don't know if I'd call it "normal", but it seems to be the current
behaviour. My solution, for the time being, was to put a restart command
into a script that's run each time I connect to the internet. Works for
me with only one problem, lots of errors logged while off-line (about the
servers it can't access).
The same issue gets discussed here:
