Complete Linux Noob Here.
Dual Booted Manjaro xfce with windows 10 for the first time on my laptop HP Pavilion 15 au-113tx.
Everything was working well in the live environment, no issues.
After the install, I try to connect to my wifi it connects just fine and shows it is connected.
But even though it shows I'm connected to wifi , I can't connect to the internet. No website is opening and can't download any package.
I searched the forum for something similar but couldn't resolve the issue. My wifi card is not a Broadcom one so I doubt it's a driver issue.
I tried connecting using a Ethernet and it connected just fine. Had a few updates and miraculously now my wifi was also working fine.
But now when I booted back into the system again I'm having the same issue.
To make things worse, now it's not connecting even using the Ethernet. Whenever I connect the wire, even then it still shows I'm connected to wifi only but under no scenario am I able to open a website or use the internet in anyway.
(really sorry for not being able to paste the text of inxi -Fx , as posting it through Windows)
Stuck on this for more than a day now. (had dual booted kde version before this where I faced the same issue. Removed it and installed xfe. I get that Desktop Environment is not suppose to change anything, just a foolish desperate attempt.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated !
Okay so this is quiet bizarre as my problem seems to come and go every time I boot into Linux. Now when I booted again, it connected just fine.
I am completely lost, and have no clue as to why it is happening.
Here is when I tried the ip link command:
