So here is the scoop, I have an ethernet cable connected to my PC, Garuda sees an IP address with it so it's connected. I know there is nothing wrong with the hardware cause I booted up debian live on a flash drive so, all my hardware works, I'm able to use telegram, signal, tor, browers without any issues on that bootable linux.

Now I boot up into Garuda, I see my system has an IP address in the connection manager. However, nothing is able to make connections with anything on my network connection. Everything just died on it. So I had some power outage, everything crashed, I rebooted and I get this issue. This is the 2nd time this happened to me. The first time, sometimes disabling the ethernet adapter and re-enabling it about 20/30 times got it going again but this time, I have no success. This problem is driving me mad cause I can't do anything with it. No IRC, no Telegram, no Thunderbird, nothing wants to go out on this network connection and function.

Does the network connection work in the Garuda live environment?

I'm sorry, I don't really know what you mean by that. If you mean when I'm loaded up and logged in then no. It has an address but no traffic seems to be routed through it

You mentioned that when you booted in to the Debian live environment, the network was up and working normally. If you can, prepare a Garuda installation USB and boot into the live environment in the same way to test.

Ok first of all, I don't have any other USB drives to load anything else on for booting. Second of all, I tried booting Garuda before off this stick with no success, and I can't even get it to run in a virtual machine

What I can do is give you some screen shots...

This is what my Garuda system looks like:

As you can see, nothing connects out to my network, yet it has an IP address

This is what Debian Live looks like:

This is the same system, and I'm talking to you over it with, as you can see, it works here so therefore the hardware is fine. Seeing is believing.

Now, how do I get all my apps in Garuda to do what there suppose to do and make connection with the world?

Have you left the killswitch on by accident?

protonvpn-cli ks --off

Oh yes, that fixed my problem. I don't know how that managed to sneek its away into my system

Thank you!
