Ethernet works just fine, though. Somewhat related, my wireless adapter doesn't come up until the machine as suspended once.

sledgehammer solution:
disable networking during bootup, bring it up manually later.
something like "systemctl disable network.target" should do the trick, but might have undesired side effects.

i used to have pretty much the same problem when i started using archlinux (a distro that has a lot more experience with systemd) and have long since solved it (so not sledgehammer), but can't remember how anymore.
please search their forums (careful, their search engine is somewhat oversensitive) and also see:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd

it might also have to do with the wireless not coming up.
which, since it does come up later, cannot be a firmware problem but it might have something to do with rfkill. hmm.

search for
Code: Select all
systemctl|grep rfkill

Can we please see the output of:
Code: Select all
systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled
systemctl --failed

The systemd journal will probably show exactly what is happening:

How about:
Code: Select all
journalctl -u networking.service

You will need to run that command as root or be a member of the systemd-journal group to be able to view those logs.

is this the output for "systemctl --failed"?
please always include the command itself when posting output.

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded.
ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB.
SUB    = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.

1 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too.

confirms that networking indeed failed.
as i said: you could issue
Code: Select all
systemctl disable networking
just to see if that would have the desired effect.
in addition to what HoaS said and in addition to the additional reading i suggested, followed by voluntarily provided troubleshooting results.
please don't make it too hard for us to help you.
thank you.

If only there was some way of analysing the logs to find out exactly what went wrong...

:roll:

Also, perhaps your unit file is corrupted — what is the exact content?
Code: Select all
systemctl cat networking.service
