Only the latest High Sierra is available from the Mac App Store, so you don't really have a choice.
Currently, it is 10.13.4.

I don't know why you would want to install an old version of 10.13.

No difference really. Why would you expect any substantial difference?

I have the older HP Pavilion Ultrabook 15-b035eg and it seems we have the same Ethernet card, but I cannot get this one to work properly no matter what I do, it shows connected but no access to all internet websites.

Is there anything to do in BIOS regarding to Ethernet (disable/enable or IPv4+IPv6 or anything)?

i had similar issue in the past, fixed it with RealtekRTL8100.
and it has nothing to do with BIOS.
if you haven't tried it yet, try this one and let me know if it works

it didn't worked, as always it looks connected but no access to all internet websites but will try again to fresh install and report back, I have installed a lot of Realtek pkg so it maybe interfering with this kext. Otherwise my laptop Ethernet might be damaged somehow.
btw, wanted to thank you a lot for your super easy and detailed guide which helped me to have nearly perfect functional hackintosh laptop.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.
