Internet connect (resolved)

Post by GELvdH »

I have 3 computers, 2 desktops and a laptop. The desktops connect to the internet without problems whereas the laptop won't. I am running LM 19.3 on all three machines plus Nordvpn. The laptop nordvpn connect to their servers ok but I don't get an internet connection. Any ideas?

Hi GELvdH,

It would help to know more about your Laptop system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Can you connect to the internet with the VPN turned off on the laptop?

The short answer is no. It is somewhat weird, initially when I reloaded the system and it updated everything it worked that day. I have Firefox set to sync and it did that fine. Everything worked the first day after it updated everything. The problem reared its ugly head after I turned the system of overnight, the next morning it would not logon to the internet. My two desktops work fine and I believe I have everything set the same way. :cry:

Any change you have TimeShift installed. If so, it wouldn't hurt to revert back a couple days to see if that helps.

I rebuild the whole system two days ago, format, reinstall software etc., so there is no timeshift to fall back on. It worked on the day I reinstalled the system but not on the following day.

I have come to the conclusion that the Laptop has decided it work only on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (maybe). We just went on vacation in the Smokie Mountains and it didn't want to work there either so I baught a new HP laptop. When I got home I installed LM 20 and everything is working fine now. YEAH.
