I recently updated the system and now am unable to connect to the Internet via WiFi or cable.

I suppose I should clarify that while it recognizes the connections it does not connect to the web. All other connectivity is fine.

All other devices wired and WiFi within my home are fine and absolutely nothing has changed with my network settings whatsoever.

P.S. I do have the infamous Broadcom card in a Dell inspiron.

I've also booted to all previous Kernels and still nothing.

Thank you immensely for any and all your help.

I could not comment (below 50 rep) so I had to ask here. Can you post your ifconfig and route -n please? Also the following:

nmcli dev list iface wlan0

Assuming your interface is wlan0

EDIT Can you post the result of ping google.com -c 2 ?

EDIT_2 ok Seems like you are connected but DNS lookup fails. Assuming you are using dhcp Can you run the following:

sudo dhclient -v -r wlan0
sudo dhclient -v wlan0

And post the output here and if you can access internet after it? If that didn't do it try

sudo ifconfig wlan0 down 
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

Then try to reconnect to your wifi network

  • Yeah it wouldn't let me comment back wither – William Harper Aug 23 '14 at 20:49
  • Maybe there's a text limit for comments I'm not sure – William Harper Aug 23 '14 at 20:50
  • Ping: unknown host google.com – William Harper Aug 24 '14 at 16:54
  • I've also removed my old kernel that went into kernel panic and Uninstaller reinstalled the driver for the Broadcom card and still nothing wired or WiFi – William Harper Aug 24 '14 at 22:10
