Constant connections drop out on Amazon EC2


Let me first preface this that I also use cloud VPS with many other services such as Linode, Digital-Ocean, have use google's services as well, etc, and this is the first time that I experience massive connection issues with the instances after being created. With other services, everything just runs as smooth as butter and I am trying to understand what is going on.

Basically, what is going on is that I create a micro Ubuntu instance, and then I SSH into it just fine. Install a few apps such as Docker, everything very light weight, can't really do much with them yet anyway with the many connections issues.

Then what happens, is that all of a sudden, out of the blue, the SSH connection will get dropped and I won't really be able to get back in for a while. I will basically have to wait then completely shut down the instance, and then reboot it.

Recently, I even got a 1 out of 2 checks passed on my EC2 Dashboard, and the one that failed was actually connectivity.

I have no clue what is going on. At first, I thought it was due to the IP changing, and I realized I may have to connect using a new IP, and the I set an elastic IP for the instance, but the same issue still happened again.

Can someone help me with this? Thank you.
