No Internet But Wired Connection OK (SOLVED)
« on: August 07, 2020, 01:34:35 pm »
When I fired up my my Desktop PC this morning, I discovered that I can't access the internet with any browser and I can't do updates, even though the Wired Connection says it's connected. Everything worked fine yesterday. 

I have 2 internal HDs on this machine. When I boot to the other one that uses Linux Mint, I can get online with no problem, so something is hosed in Peppermint.

Did your Wifi connection work before with Peppermint?

Or are you working with a fresh installation?

Thanks for responding...

It's a desktop machine - it doesn't have wi-fi.

I installed Peppermint a little over a week ago.

had this happen to me earlier with bodhi which i put xfce on, i got mine working by right clicking the network icon then edit connections. click on wired connection then the cog arrow on the bottom of the window which open its settings. under the ethernet tab i had to change the device and it worked straight away.

I ended up reinstalling to fix this. I also posted my query in the Network forum.

Hi Syepod,

Sorry that the only solution that worked was a reinstallation  :'( -- but glad to hear that you now have it all working again!  8)

Also, thank you for marking this as (SOLVED) in both locations in the forum.  ;)
