Wifi connected but no internet

I don’t have access to internet even though I’m connected to my WiFi in chromium I get dns probe finished no internet

Hi and Welcome to the fourms.

You haven’t provided a lot of information, so below is a list of various questions that may provide some helpful information to solve the issue:

Do any other devices on your network work properly?

Can you please post the output of ip addr, ip route, and the contents of your /etc/resolv.conf.

Also, can you ping your internet router? The command will be something like this ping
Can you ping an internet host? Something like this: ping

Can you access any websites by ip?
For example:

# wget
    --2020-09-06 14:49:38--

Have you tried a different browser? (Eg… firefox)

The same issue with firefox

Thank you.

You did receive an ip, that’s good.

When I asked what is in /etc/resolv.conf – that’s a text file. The command you would use is cat /etc/resolv.conf to see the contents (or open with your favourite GUI text editor) and it should look something like this:

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf 
# Generated by NetworkManager

Can you redo your ping command with your gateway instead of my example: ping

Lastly, when you pinged google ( did it respond at all or just as you wrote there?

As successful ping looks like this (with the “64 bytes” lines):

 # ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=116 time=8.26 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=116 time=10.8 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=116 time=11.2 ms

Hello again and thank you so much for helping me , it’s my first time on Linux and I installed manjaro yesterday it did work perfectly and today when I launched it I got this issue
1-this the result of the commands
nacer@asce ~]$ cat /etc/resolv.config
[nacer@asce ~]$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
3 - same with Google it’s just freezed there no response to the command

Hmm, that is interesting.

So, you have an IP and your system is configured to use Google’s DNS servers, but your card cannot reach your router.

the issue isnt immediate obvious to me, maybe others in this forum have ideas, but can you try to disconnect and reconnect your wifi using the GUI network manager. See if that helps.

I’ll read some a bit later and see if I can come up with anything more.

I swear I’m having a whole manjaro page squad helping me for about 3hours lol and nothing , they all told that everything looks fine and they can’t get why I can’t get access to internet
Thank so much

I had a random thought. I wonder if its possible your router is getting confused and simply not answering to your wifi.

Maybe try rebooting your router.

i used timeshift and everything is back to normal , now i don’t know if it’s gonna happen again , but thank you for everything

It works. I had a same problem when connected to android hotspot. Now it solved by adding the router IP as a nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf. Thanks.

For anyone coming here in future here’s the solution.
Go to /etc/resolv.conf

and add your router’s ip as name server for example:
