    Lubuntu, Mac-book 4.1, Huawei router, WiFi

    Hello,
    I'm successfully installed Lubuntu 19.10 on my Mac-book 4.1 and also wifi was working flawlessly until I tried to use it with a Huawei B535 router... Instead with the previous router (TP-Link Archer D50) the WiFi 2.4 GHz has always worked fine.
    With this router my Lubuntu sees the WiFi wlan at 2.4 GHz, seems to connect without problems but actually it doesn't work: internet is down and also the local wlan is down because I can't reach the webpage of the router.
    I've run the wireless-info script, the result is here: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Nj4RMbpqCY/

    Thank you all in advance,
    bye R.

    Moved to Apple Hardware, try this command in terminal, then reboot
    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
    That will disable wifi power management

    Anybody else?
    In the mean time I've "paved and nuked" with a brand new Kubuntu 19.10 and also I did reset to factory settings the Huawei router, but the situation is always the same...

    I keep waiting a kind suggesion

    Bye,
    R.

    A suggestion - check what DNS server your Mac is using. Is it using the IP address of the router? Try adding another DNS like 8.8.8.8.

    OK but.. where should I add the new DNA server? Is there a configuration file?

    Thank you!
    Bye, R.

    Try Control Center > Network > DNS tab > add
    or
    System Settings > Network > Options button > IPv4 settings
    (these vary with desktop choice)

    Also with the new DNS wifi does not work...
    The weird thing is that even ping doesn't work: I can ping only myself!

    What is the IP address of your new router?

    It's 192.168.8.1, that's one of the addresses I tried to ping in my previous post.

    Thank you.
