Re: [SOLVED] WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

Thanks, I decided to go back to 4.15.X since I'm still getting used to Linux. I ended up having to do both the driver install and the antenna change again, the DNS change stayed after the kernel switch, but the WiFi is working great now,

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

This worked, I was starting to wonder if this was a DNS issue. Thanks for everyone's help, I just have one more question. During this process I changed the kernel from 4.15 to 4.18, but I noticed that 4.18 reaches end of support at the end of this month. I think I should probably switch to either 5....

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

I have the default firewall turned on, but I tried connecting to websites with it turned off too. I just double checked to be sure, and there was no change.

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

Correction, this is the fix I meant in my last comment (I thought you had suggested it, but it was someone else): Try a change in antenna selection, because close-fisted HP is notorious for attaching just one antenna instead of two: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/realtek.html#ID2 (item ...

sudo rmmod rtl8821ce rmmod: ERROR: Module rtl8821ce is not currently loaded sudo modprobe 8821ce didn't return anything. Before I saw your last comment, I went through the original process you suggested using 8821ce instead of rtl8821ce. I was able to get through it without any errors and after rebo...

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

I just changed the kernel to 4.18, and I'm in the process of reinstalling the driver but I noticed this: After this, You can create a configuration file with following command. /bin/bash -c 'echo "options 8821ce rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/8821ce.conf' Then reboot your...

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

Is it an issue that I'm seeing a broadcom driver and a realtek driver (see below)?

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

phd21: The issue is still ongoing. I can connect to my WiFi but most websites won't load, instead they say I don't have an internet connection. I can load youtube on WiFi and play videos, but the majority of websites will not connect. When I connect by Ethernet cord, all the websites that weren't lo...

Re: WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

Thanks for the response, I actually did that before coming to the forum. After I first installed Linux Mint, I couldn't see any WiFi networks at all and actually found the solution in that Ask Ubuntu link you added. To be safe, I tried it again, and this is the output I got: bmas@TechLyfe:~$ mokutil...

[SOLVED] WiFi is connected but some websites can't connect.

I just installed Linux Mint 19 on my HP Notebook because it could barely start up out of the box with Windows 10. So far it's much faster, dare I even say usable? I installed a Realtek wireless driver in order to connect to my WiFi. Now the WiFI is working, but most websites say there is no internet...
