Wifi Connected But No Internet !.
Anyone have problems connecting a Linux laptop to a public wifi.?
Trying to get my daughters laptop ready for uni next month I wanted to try to see if it would connect to a public wifi, I went down to our local pub and used there connection (wpa with key) with there permission.
Having first removed all the network adapter's in pcc > network manager, I set up a new connection in pcc, entered the key, it connected and gave me an ip address but said it was not connected to the internet !, I have tried this several times, tried a reboot, still no internet.
I could ping the router ok but could not ping anything else past that.
The landlady said her laptop is ok on the internet at the back of the bar .
I did try http://192.168.1.1 in a browser for access to there router but it was password protected.
I have had this sort of thing at home and have to go to the routers settings page and click 'connect' but I can not do that on a public wifi. !.
I can connect at home ok to our 'wifi access point'.
Do you think this is a DNS problem ?.
I have two days to get it sorted before we go on a day visit to her uni .
Edit.. It's the same with the firewall on/off !.
