Edit: Network Settings finally opened and has given me a message saying "The system network services are not compatible with this version". Is this because I updated through Ubuntu Software before I left?
Just came back from a LAN event and I'm unable to connect back to my home WiFi. Once I'm logged into my account there is no Network icon in the top right corner and when I load system settings and attempt to navigate to the Network settings the window becomes unresponsive. New to Ubuntu and typing this out on mobile so this may take some time.
Edit: When attempting to ping a web address I get
ping: unknown host google.com
But when I ping the IP I get.
PING 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data
64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: ICMP_seq=1 ttl=44 time=39.8 ms
However when doing the command nslookup google.com I get
; ; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Upon reboot of PC the network icon is visible in the top right but when trying to connect to the network through that yields the message: Failed to add/activate connection (1) Insufficient privileges
The icon vanishes as soon as I log in
Within /etc/resolv.conf all there is is a line that states
