    Unable to connect to wireless router

    I am running Ubuntu Desktop 18. I have been unable to connect to the internet via my router. I can ping my local router, but I can't do much of anything else.
    Here is what I get with my "route" command:
    Code:
    Kernel IP routing tableDestination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
    default         _gateway        0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 <wireless_int>
    default         _gateway        0.0.0.0         UG    20600  0        0 <wireless_int>
    link-local      0.0.0.0         255.255.0.0     U     1000   0        0 <wireless_int>
    172.16.1.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 <wireless_int>
    172.16.1.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     600    0        0 <wireless_int>
    172.16.1.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     600    0        0 <wireless_int>

    i don't know much, but there should be only one gateway (not 2) and one local subnet route, not 3). I’ve got no idea how the routing above happened. Probably just too many connection attempts.

    The information under columns 'Use Iface' is missing.

    @TheFu - It could be that there two network devices in the system. Three local subnet route - no idea.

    Yep. I've had multiple wifi devices connected and forgotten a few times myself. Perhaps one doesn't work well with the wifi-AP and the other one is a USB plug wifi adapter?

    Hopefully, the OP got it all sorted.
