Linux mint Internet issues

Recommended Posts

I have a fresh install of Linux mint and the WiFi works and I can use the Internet perfectly.

However after installing katoolin, which I get no errors, after rebooting I can't get any Internet at all even though network manager says I am connected to my network.
I can't ping anything.

I think it messed up my dhcp or something but I don't know how to find out where it went wrong


What happened?

If you run (from the terminal):

ip a

 

What's the output?  That should tell you whether or not DHCP is acquiring an address.

 

ifconfig would also work to get that info, if you've got the older network tools installed.  Not sure who runs what these days  🙂

Hmm, sounds like you aren't getting a dhcp address.  Wpa_supplicant doesn't need manual intervention if network manager is controlling it.  I have run into this when swapping on usb network adapters.  After you connect, go sudo and type this.  I am on a phone so no code wrap.

 

dhclient -4 <your interface here>
