On redhat 7.4 wireguard not working

Just when I thought it worked here are more problems:

The steps I followed were:

1. wget

2. yum install iproute-4.6.0-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm

I installed from fc25 since rhel7 does not have an upgraded iproute package.

3. After installing the iproute 4.6 I do NOT get the error message:

"Error: argument "suppress_prefixlength" is wrong: Failed to parse rule

4. ifconfig shows the wg0 interface.

5. After approx 2 minutes my ssh connection to the machine over the LAN
(eth0) gets disconnected.

6. When I ssh back in to the machine, ifconfig does not show the wg0

Please help :(

version for iproute2 and fail with a error message,
