Connected to the network but with no access to internet

Hi there,
About 3 months ago i started to use garuda linux and everything was just perfect, i was loving using it and for a first linux experience i must say that it was fantastic but from about 3 days to now suddenly i wasn't able to access the internet anymore even thought it says that i am connected to the network, i also tried to use my ethernet cable but it doesn't seem to work as well.

I noticed as well that whenever i search for any website, say youtube the message i get back is that the "Server was not found" can this be a dhcp problem?

I know for sure that the problem isn't with my network drive or the router as i can access the Internet with no problems on windows (i am using dual boot) and my friend too. I have tried many different solutions i saw online but as i am relatively new to linux i don't know exactly what should i do.

Here is some info, i hope it helps

Things i have tried

  • Ping my router (as you can see above)
  • Reboot my computer
  • Restarting my network interface (wlp2s0) with ifconfig
  • Restarting the network manager with systemctl restart NetworkManager

There is also something that i think it's worth noticing, whenever i restart the network or reboot my computer my connection always starts with about 10mb/s and then it goes all the way down to 0b/s and it stays like that.

Thanks in advance :grin:

Both lan and wlan are connected you need to disable one of them


Also try changing your DNS with the Garuda assistant to Eg or


No problem on Desktop PC's in my home area :slight_smile:

My laptop's have only Wireless Network Adapter. So IDK.

for some reason both of his interfaces are connected :smiley: He has two ip address
Has it a guess he getting a ip conflict


Please try different kernels, if you haven't already.


That is because i was testing before to see if it would work, but apparently it does not... :slightly_frowning_face:

I disconnected one of them but is still not working and for some reason now it doesn't allow me to turn it on again, when i try to use the command "sudo ifconfig wlp2s0 up" i get the following

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy

I tried but it didn't worked, i even tried the other ones but no luck...

It doesn't allow me to change kernels as i do not have access to internet to install them...

If you have a cell phone you can use USB phone tethering to perform a system update or install a new kernel. I would suggest testing the LTS kernel.

However, this is likely a DNS issue.


I have tried all the DNS options that i have with garuda assistant like @filo mentioned from Adguard to Quad9 and none of them seemed to make a difference

Are you able to ping

No, i get the following

ping: connect: Network is unreachable

Generally things rarely break without a cause. Did this happen after rebooting (post update)?

1 Like

I think so because everything was working in the previous day and i did nothing different, just the "sudo pacman -Syyu" command as always

try a snapshot before you upgraded?


Yap It worked, seems like the issue was with the upgrade for some reason, anyways thank you @TilliDie and everyone who tried to help me i really am grateful :grin:

Try your next update using,
