Wired connection can only connect with Google website (YouTube, Google, etc), but can't connect with anything else

I installed Garuda (lovin it by the way, way better than ubuntu) and since then only Google websites can be reached, I’m using mozila, brave, chromium, all browsers have the same issue.
I tried to change the DNS with Garuda assistant with the “choose DNS service” to other than default, but when I do it, nothing connects, not even YouTube.
Tried to change the configurations of the Ethernet, nothing works.

Made a factory reset of the config on my modem, no success.

I can ping “www.google.com”, but can’t ping, I’m two days trying to solve this, but nothing works

There are other devices connected to your modem? if yes, do they navigate normally?
Did you try to set other DNS services directly on the router? (such as open dns: . .)

All cellphones and devices are working normally. I tried some things that I saw online, the first was trying to use the OpenDNS to solve it, but didn’t worked, maybe I did it wrong, I don’t know, I’m not a experienced Linux user

What’s the problem with not posting garuda-inxi?
It contains additional, useful information about the status of your system.

:warning: Missing information requested in the template may result in not receiving assistance

Make sure you have done the following before you post:

Issue still unresolved? Then:

  • ONE issue per topic.
  • Describe your issue in detail. The more we know, the better we can help
  • Show us the results of your searches, and what you’ve tried
  • After rebooting, post the FULL output of garuda-inxi in the body of the post (not linked externally, or collapsed with the “hide details” feature)
  • Format terminal output (including your garuda-inxi) as a code block by clicking the preformatted text button (</>) , or put three tildes (~) above and below the text

Just edit your first post :slight_smile:


Welcome to the forum. :wave:

Are you using a static IP address?

If so, set “method” to “automatic” in Network Manager’s IPv4 connection properties.

Set IPV6 to ignore in Network Manager.


I’m using automatic for both ipv4 and ipv6, when I set ipv6 to ignore, the wired connection it’s recognized, but without internet (can’t ping even Google.com)

Any suggestions?

Have you tried the r8168 driver instead of the r8169 driver?


How can I do this downgrade? I was using Tor browser in Ubuntu, before changing to Garuda, can the Tor connection affected all this?

No downgrade, blacklist 8169, search in forum.

Use either pacman or your package manager (Octopi?) to search for that driver.

Did it, nothing changed, tried all 3 options avaliable on Octopi.

So I downloaded via Octopi the Tor browser, and with the Tor connection, all websites work again.

It’s weird because Octopi and terminal commands can make downloads, but my Discord and Lutris applications for example, can’t update or download anything when I open them.

Can you load up a live instance of garuda and test internet connectivity and access to sites?
If you can connect it is settings in garuda if not it is your router settings


I loaded a live instance of Garuda, couldn’t connect using the FireDragon browser, not even the terminal ping worked

Then please check your router and your cables, ie reboot your router with your pc off , then restart your pc


Plugged and unplugged all cables from the router to the pc. Restarted the modem and checked all cables, all devices connected to modem working properly (Can only write here by cellphone btw). Rebooted the PC. Same status for everything.

Can other devices in your home connect to the internet through the router?


Computer firewall off?

Do you have customized rules in your router?

Reset your router back to the factory default.

Test a new Ethernet cable, and switch ports on your router.

Test an Ubuntu live disk to see if things are working correctly in that live environment.


Yes, all working normally

Firewall off, I reset the router yesterday, will do it again

The last thing that i can suggest is you download another live usb of another distro to check your internet on your pc? btw check if you have an update for your bios
