[SOLVED]WiFi connected but no Internet connection

Postby mdavies5 » Fri Nov 11, 2016 12:42 am

First, congratulations on a great release. No problems installing to HDD and setting up wifi etc. I am an experienced Linux user with Debian8 as my usual distro. I have an unusual problem. WiCD shows my connection as working and my modem shows a connection. I can ping an outside IP (my ISP actually) but I cannot connect to any site with browser and Synaptic cannot connect to any repository.
I have checked all the logs and syslog reports that wlan0 is authenticated and connected. I have tested many distros and never encountered this problem. Any help would be much appreciated while I try additional tests.
Update: That will teach me to accept defaults in wicd setup. I checked the "Global DNS Servers" box initially. After unchecking and reconnecting the internet came to life.
