• WiFi is connected but no internet


    Hello,
    I am brand new to linux, I’ve just recently installed antergos.
    I am using a desktop, dell inspiron 530, with antergos and windows vista dual boot.
    For my wifi, I am using a netgear wifi dongle.

    I am using my phone as a hotspot for wifi. The wifi will work for a random amount of time, but then the internet will stop working, but antergos still says i’m connected. I have to turn off “Wireless Network” in antergos and back on again before it will start working again.

    ifconfig during working internet:

    [[email protected] Desktop]$ ifconfig
    enp0s25: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

    and when the internet stopped working :

    [[email protected] Desktop]$ ifconfig
    enp0s25: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
            ether 00:21:9b:07:97:ba  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)

    [[email protected] Desktop]$
    

    So it appears there is no change.

    Please excuse my ignorance, I am not very comfortable with using the terminal yet.

    I tried looking through previous posts, but nothing I tried would work. I tried installing linux-lts, like one user suggested in another topic, but that did nothing.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    thanks in advance!

  • Does this happen after you walk away for a bit or while you are using it? How is the cell reception? Could the cell phone be losing good signal for those periods?

  • @Palanthis It happens while using it. Watching youtube, browsing the internet, etc.
    I have a very reliable cell phone signal, and my other connected devices (tablet and laptop) never have an issue.

  • @benjermin96 Gothca. Lemme do some thinking / research.

    Edit* Do you know the exact model of the dongle? I’d like to see what chipset is in that so I can like at driver-specific issues.

  • @Palanthis yes, it is a netgear wna1000m,
    thanks !

  • @benjermin96 said in WiFi is connected but no internet:

    netgear wna1000m

    try this driver:

    8192cu-dkms
    yaourt -S 8192cu-dkms
    As it is not a package and you need to build a package needs to use yaourt or pacaur, or do it out of pamac (graphical package manager) you may need to enable AUR support inside its settings first.
    0_1511531622547_Bildschirmfoto vom 2017-11-24 14-53-21.png
    Then you can hit the search glass and search for 8192cu-dkms

    If it builds and gives you a all done succsessfully under details view, reboot and try again
    to connect network.
