So I don't know how to properly explain this issue of mine that I'm experiencing, and that is as follows: In my university network, I cannot connect to select websites (even websites of my own university) through WLAN. However, when I use the VPN provided by the university, I gain access to all websites (using Cisco AnyConnect). Normally, this shouldn't be the case; even without VPN, I am supposed to have access to any website (as is the case with my peers), funnier is, I never had any issues up until yesterday when this issue appeared out of the blue.
At home, everything works as usual, VPN or not. So I am at a total loss for what the issue could be.
Sorry for the fact that I haven't provided any technical info like logs or something. I'm not that well-versed in ubuntu but I did try several solutions posted elsewhere and nothing worked. If there's anything I can do to make the problem less vague, please let me know. What I do know is that I use Ubuntu 18.04.
Thank you so much for your time, and have a nice day :)
Edit: Here's the ouput in terminal after running tracerote reddit.com:
traceroute to reddit.com (220.127.116.11), 64 hops max 1 traceroute: sendto: Das Netzwerk ist nicht erreichbar
Furhtermore, it seems that several people are affected by this issue as well. I'm starting to get the feeling that the issue lies in the university network and not with my pc.
