I'm currently running ubuntu 17.10.

I have a D-Link dongle for my wireless. It sees the networks but can't connect.

I've tried:

  • Going to resolv.conf and adding nameserver
  • Going to networkmanager.conf and adding "[device] wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no"
  • Changing IPv4 dns to in wifi settings.
  • Using "sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf"

The last one worked once. I was able to connect and browse. However after rebooting I had the same problem and using this command (sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf) doesn't fix anything.

I've had this problem many times, any suggestions on how to stop it once and for all?
