Have been an Arch user for many years, but just recently installed EndeavorOS and this is my first post here. Arch is my favorite distro, but I install Linux for quite a few people and need something I can install quickly as the Arch install is a little time consuming. It’s just been a day but so far I like EndeavorOS as it is Arch based and doesn’t seem too bloated. Congratulations on a good distro!
Didn’t find a Networking category at this forum so I’ll post this in the Newbie section. I’m having trouble connecting this laptop to the internet on certain wifi networks. Here is the scenario:
- If I boot from the EndeavorOS USB stick used to install the system, the live EndeavorOS connects to the internet as expected via any wifi network.
- However, the fresh install of EndeavorOS will not connect to the internet over public wifi network or my smartphone hotspot. The public wifi internet requires authorization over a portal with a login page while of course the smartphone hotspot doesn’t. Trying to connect to the public wifi network doesn’t even get as far as the login page leaving me with a timed out error message, while the hotspot connects to wifi okay but not the internet. Pinging (hotspot connection) gives me:
$ ping 188.8.131.52 PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. From 192.168.74.33 icmp_seq=9 Destination Net Unreachable
- No problem connecting to internet over home network.
I think the fact I can connect successfully booting from the USB stick but not from the fresh install should eliminate a lot of possibilities and maybe offer clues to anyone who knows the EndeavorOS install process well. It is the same computer, but there seems to be something different between the live EndeavorOS on the USB stick and and the OS it installs. Not sure what that could be except the hostname.
Thanks for any help!
