i have kind of a strange problem. My WiFi is connected, but none of my installed software can use the connection.
The os (Antergos, Gnome) runs for a few month without any problems. Yesterday, everything is fine, i shut down the computer, and now i have the problem. I restarted several time, also with the fallback system. I connected via LAN. I connected to another WiFi. I checked my router, the Laptop shows in the list of the active devices.
But still, Firefox, Thunderbird, Spotify, Software Updater, the Console - they all say i’m not connected to the internet. Also, Firefox and Thunderbird do need a lot more time to start.
Here is my ifconfig:

I tried some hint i found, like the ones below, but i don’t have any idea what to look for.
systemctl enable NetworkManager.service
sudo killall dhcphd
I’m open for all ideas. Next i will try to boot an live system to see if it is an hardware problem, but don’t know if that is even possible, because the connection to the router is there.
Thank you so much for your time.
