    No internet connection

    Hello.
    Internet was working fine, both wi-fi an Ethernet.
    Then there was an update of snap and the next time I started the laptop, I could not connect to the internet, either wi-fi is Ethernet.
    I tried to boot from a USB Kubuntu disk, same problem from the pen drive.

    I already tried what is suggested in this website: https://www.cyberithub.com/solved-no...-ubuntu-20-04/
    Nothing changed.
    I tried uninstalling snap, nothing changed.
    When I run "ping google.com" in the terminal, I get the error "temporary failure in the resolution of the name" translated from Portuguese.

    I am on Kubuntu 20.04
    Network manager 1.22.10
    Ethernet controller: realteck semiconductor
    Network controller: Nvidia GM107M

    Thank you for any help
    Yoram

    Re: No internet connection

    DNS failing doesn't mean that the internet is down or your access is broke. It just means that DNS isn't working.

    See if you can ping a well-known IP -
    Code:
    ping 8.8.8.8
    Does that work? If it does, it is just a DNS issue, nothing more.
    If that ping fails, try to ping your router. I don't know the IP address, but 192.168.0.1 is common. You'll need to figure that out.

    To get your configured gateway - usually your router, use:
    Code:
    read -r x x i x< <(ip r g 1);echo "$i"
    Then try to ping the IP returned by that command. Or do it all in 1 command:
    Code:
    ping -c 2 $(read -r x x i x< <(ip r g 1);echo "$i")
    If that works, then try rebooting the router and checking other systems on the LAN for issues.
    If that doesn't work, we need some information about the network devices in your computer. This is where it gets harder, since the easy ways to get that information are using tools that aren't installed by default - so if you haven't installed them, it will get ugly. Anyway, the easy commands are:
    Code:
    inxi -Nx
    # or
    lshw -C network
    Either is fine.
    If those say Command not found, or something like that, then we have to do it the harder way:
    Code:
    lspci -vk |egrep --after-context=8 'Ethernet|Network'
    #  or
    lspci -vk |perl -lne 'print if /Ethernet|Network/ .. /^[\w]*$/'
    The last command is the most flexible, but getting the spacing correct is less easy.
    From there, we can decide what to do. Hopefully, the first ping 8.8.8.8 command works. If so, stop and let us know that.

    Thank you for your help.
    Nothing so far.
    Ping 8.8.8.8 gave the following result:

    ^C

    ping 192.168.2.1 gave the following result:

    ping -c 2 $(read -r x x i x< <(ip r g 1);echo "$i") have the following result:

    </code>

    Rebooting the router did nothing.
    My phone, from where I write this, connects well to the wi-fi and another laptop connects well with the LAN.

    I will now try the next steps.
    PS: sorry I don't know how to place the terminal results in a voice tag from the phone.

    Re: No internet connection

    The commands you've run so far say the problem is between the router and the internet, not between the computer and the router.
    Only enable the wired connection.
    Or
    Only enable the wifi connection.
    Never have both enabled concurrently.

    The RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet is connecting to the router at only 100base-tx speeds. That usually doesn't make sense, unless your router is really, really, really, old or there is a bad cable.

    I also see you are running kernel version 5.11.x ... which is really new. There have been a number of network issues with that kernel. Can you run the 5.4.x kernel instead? 20.04 should still have that installed. For non-LTS, newer, releases, I really cannot help. I'm an LTS-only person.

    If you haven't patched the router in the last 3 months, patch it. If there aren't any patches available, it is time for a new router. Routers need to be patched all the time. I patch mine weekly. Usually there are updates every other week as a reference.

    Re: No internet connection [Solved]

    Well,
    That explains that the internet came back as mysteriously as it went. I connected the computer today (after 3 days of no internet) and it was working!

    I understand what you said, but it remains mysterious that other devices could connect to it while I could not.
    Yes, I only have ehternet or wifi enabled at a time. Not both.

    Well, all is well that ends well.
    Thank you very much for your help.
