It looks like your IP settings are correct. Is your DNS working? Can you resolve hostnames to IP addresses? e.g. nslookup fedoraproject.org should return several IP addresses.

No it give a ;; communications error to timed out
and DNS seems not working
output of resolvectl :

while for 2.4ghz :

Well, now it seems to work after i connect to it again without any problem “for now”, I really don’t know why and what make it work ,I didn’t touch anything now actually, I tried a lot of commands the past three days like A LOT, but I missed up something in the settings I will fix it later as long as the wifi working I will try to restart to see if anything changed

another update i restart the laptop the wifi didn’t work as usual but I decided to restart the router the wifi getting work again, I don’t know exactly what happening but it works thanks for your time :saluting_face:, and I have another question this website suddenly get down it happend twice and can’t open it while every website works fine, is this something with the company provide me the Internet?

A router is just another form of a computer with a dedicated purpose.

Sometimes rebooting the router may be needed just like your laptop or desktop pc. Things may be in cache there that need to be wiped out and the restart accomplishes that.

maybe that the problem, but I was having this problem like for a year ago when I was using linux on my old laptop and couldn’t fix it, anyway it works right now, thanks for the info. :saluting_face:

I had the same problem a couple of times today, it may be related to the Fedora infrastructure. Yesterday was fine though.

Hi again nothing being fixed :classic_smiley:
the wifi can’t get the ip address it can’t connect to it at all
any more solutions?

If it sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t, it could be your router. Can you post the DHCP settings of your router (IP address range, default gateway, DNS server, etc.)? Also, if you set your router as a DNS server, does it have a reliable DNS service running?

this DHCP server settings

and this the DHCPV6 server
I hope that’s what you want, I don’t know a lot about this settings

But it’s working on windows and other devices
what make it to not working on linux even the 2.4ghz settings like 5ghz it doesn’t make sense to me i don’t have a lot of information
I will try a live usb on another laptop

On your first image, can you set the primary and secondary DNS servers to a well-known public DNS resolver? You can use Quad9 (, Google (, Cloudflare ( or whatever you like.

I can’t it’s grayed locked

Can you disable getting DNS from DHCP and specify DNS servers on the connection profile? It should look similar to below picture.
