My laptop(running Ubuntu 18) could not connect to home WiFi. I tried searching for the answer but none of them helped.

I keep on getting dns probe finished bad config and other dns related error or could not connect to internet on chrome.

when doing ping on google.com almost 80% packets are lost. I checked by router and there are no blocked MAC addresses. I tried resetting the router but that also didn't help. WiFi works good on my phone but not on laptop.

When i connect my laptop to my office WiFi it just works fine. The problem persists on my home WiFi.

some of the solution I tried

  • Have you installed the correct drivers? I can't begin to guess what the NIC is. – Ken Sharp Sep 20 '18 at 5:54
  • I installed fresh Ubuntu and also the WiFi works in my office. The problem is in my home network. So I think the drivers are installed or you can tell me how to check if i have correct drivers? – Yogesh Gupta Sep 20 '18 at 7:03
  • can someone help me? – Yogesh Gupta Sep 24 '18 at 4:53
