Same here. I am able to ping my router (192.168.0.1), and the command ip address yields valid ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.
But everything else is completely dead. I’m using Plasma 5 and just as Marouane87 describes with GNOME, the KDE network icon is light gray as well. It shows that I am connected (and I am, because I can access the router), but there is no traffic to (or from) the internet itself.
I also connected my smartphone to the notebook via USB tethering (which usually works fine), but I still have no internet – no matter if the smartphone itself gets its internet from WiFi or from mobile data. Same when connecting it to a LAN cable. So it might well be some broken security measure blocking internet access or something like that.
I lost connection to the internet instantly after updating. Here are the updated packages:
Adding the ‘nameserver’ line to my /etc/resolv.conf file solved the issue for me as well. Strange that it so randomly works now… I’m also curious why that happened and how to anticipate that in the future.
This solution isn’t working for me. I tried both 192.168.0.254 and 10.0.0.1 in /etc/resolv.conf and my browser said “server dns address could not be found”. Also I’m still getting “ping: socket: Permission denied”.
Am I missing some small detail?
I’m connected both wired and wireless and I have ip addresses for both connections but unable to get out on the internet. NetworkManager isn’t showing any errors.
Well, as soon as I posted above, I decided to delete /etc/resolv.conf and reboot. I examined the file and it had changed, with many more commented lines and instructions. The nameserver was 192.168.1.254 and now my internet is working again.
I decided the easiest path was to just delete my /etc/resolv.conf file and reboot. After this, everything was working again. Seems the system created a new /etc/resolv.conf file for me. It looks like it gets the info from the /etc/resolv.conf.netconfig file. Thank you to everyone who pointed me in the right direction to fix this. I wouldn’t have been able to solve this otherwise! Thank You!
I’m still having some odd behavior after the update but my internet is still working. My NetworkManager icon in the panel is grayed out with an orange question mark beside it, but if I click on it, it shows my wireless adapter is connected.
I’m experiencing the exact same issue. I can connect to my network (to my router) but I only see the grey WiFi symbol with an orange/yellow question mark. I am offline and can not connect to the internet.
I just installed Tumbleweed last week after having used Ubuntu for the last 6 years and had the fear that I broke something by being stupid and running zipper -dup, but apparently this issue applies to more users.
I tried to follow the advice, suggesting to edit or remove /etc/resolv.conf, but it did not work for me or I did it wrong. I would very much appreciate, if a possible solution could be explained, such that a newbie like me can follow the steps.
After aplying Tumbleweed update last sunday september the 25th on my Tumbleweed laptop with Plasma 5, I have the same behaviour: a message that wifi was connected, but a grayed out wifi-icon with a question mark, and no connection to the internet or my network. Both wireless and wired for that matter (also a questionmark): no response at all on
And I had to give the wifi password over and over again. However, after editing /etc/resolv.conf as described above my internet works again, both wired and wireless.
Odly enough, the network icon is not properly refreshed: the wifi - icon was still gray with an orange question mark, while connected. And after plugging in the network cable and then plugging it out, the icon for wired network keeps sitting in the system tray. When hovering with the mouse over it, it says “wifi connected.”
