Hello, today I bought a new modem and as soon as I connected Kde tells me “limited connection” (Kde tells me that the internet doesn’t work but it actually works)
I already tried these two things:
The interesting thing is that from the modem settings I assigned a static IP address to the device… and the problem was solved. So the problem is the dynamic IP address. How could I solve?
How many devices are connected to your modem?
And isn’t your problem is solved by applying a static IP?
Hi, three devices are connected: Smartphone, Windows PC and Linux PC. With Smartphone and Windows I don’t get any similar message.
As for the static IP, the message is resolved by adding the Linux PC with the static IP. But it’s strange, with the old modem I didn’t have a static IP and the message wasn’t there
I had this happen on another distro with KDE for a bit. I can’t remember what caused it exactly, but it was solved with an network manager package update.
I also had this in my XFCE setup but it got fixed after a couple of updates. I don’t know what causes it though.
I’ll try waiting for the updates, the connection works so it’s not a big problem. In my case, however, I doubt it is a question of updates because if I put the old modem back, the problem doesn’t exist
Might be a DNS resolve issue or the IP issued to your device by DHCP is replicated on another device. Which is cached in the modem.
I don’t think there are other devices connected to the same IP address, at least in the modem configuration they all seem to be connected to different IP addresses (photo)
I also have an access point, but it is set to 192.168.1.200
It’s possible it’s a DNS issue but I don’t know where to get my hands on the modem settings honestly
It’s really strange. When this same thing happened to me I was unable to find what was causing it.
Well… as long as I don’t see any strangeness in the connection, the problem interests me relatively. It’s definitely annoying but if it’s a false alarm I can ignore it
I tried to start Kde Neon from live and the connection doesn’t give me the same problem… it’s really strange
Totally randomly the problem no longer occurs
I’ll see if it comes back over time
I withdraw the comment, the problem is back again
