I've just been discussing the same problem over the last few days.  Have a
read of the "What does 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:
