Model: Archer C6  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.1.7

My c6 router is not working on my laptop which has a ubuntu OS installed. Its working fine on other devices but on my laptop when I try to connect, it prompts for password and gets connected. But internet does not work. Even the wifi sign shows no internet access icon.

Make sure your wireless settings are:

What DNS servers you are using in C6 ?

What's the output of ' cat /etc/resolv.conf ' in Ubuntu console ?

Try pinging 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 from Ubuntu console.

If you receive ping responses then change the DNS in C6 Network->DHCP server to 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 reboot the C6 and test again.

If this was helpful click once on the arrow pointing upward. If this solves your issue, click once the star to mark it as a "Recommended Solution".

@terziyski I changed the DHCP servers after seeing the success of the ping messages and it worked. Thank you.
