I was using internet connectivity by making my smartphone as wifi hotspot. Once i used internet connectivity using ethernet cable.I made manual proxy settings & ip addresses. After that I am not able to connect to internet using my smartphone wifi hotspot. The wifi connection is detected at the right top corner of my ubuntu desktop. It shows it's status as connected. But when i open the browser I can not get the requested web page. I searched a lot about this problem on google. But did't find a working solution. Can anyone help me about this problem?
If you have connectivity you're most likely having a DNS problem. Many people have DNS problems with Ubuntu because the default system turns resolv.conf to 127.0.0.1.
Add a custom head to this default with a nameserver that works.
Append to the file:
Reboot the computer to restart the networking service.
Question different answer the same as: Cannot connect to Internet but Ethernet is connected
