Fedora 35: No wired internet after fresh install

Hello to everyone,

Quick Intro:-------------------
I thought that I should give fedora 35 a try, so I flashed it useing rufus to a USB stick using the GPT partition scheme.

I already have Windows 10 (UEFI) installed on an SSD hard drive (sdb) and I wanted to try dual booting, but since there was not as much space as I would like on sdb, I decided to install Fedora 35 on another SSD hard drive (sdd).

I freed 250 Gigs off that hard drive (sdd), and made them unallocated. Then I booted to the usb stick on UEFI mode and I installed Fedora 35 on that unallocated space.

More specifically, through the graphical interface I chose sdd as the installation destination, and for storage configuration I selected custom. Then I created two mount points : /boot/efi with 512M capacity and / with the rest of the unallocated space, I clicked done and let the installer do it’s job. Fast forward to after the restart and I have no internet connection.

I should note that I have no wireless card on my pc, and I have an ethernet cable connected. On the top right corner I see a questionmark on the connection.

the output of ifconfig:

The output of ping:
ping -c 2
ping: connect: Network is unreachable

Any ideas on what might be wrong here?

You only have IPv6 active on that interface. Quite possibly your ISP uses IPv4 as well as your router.

Please send us the output of ip address show and ip route show.

Especially if trying to ping IPv4 addresses like

First of all, thank you very much for your answer.

After some time I realized that I did not have internet access during the live cd boot as well.

I am not 100% sure about this, but this issue could have been caused due to the “DD” selection , when I flashed the OS to the usb using Rufus.

Therefore I retried flashing the OS to the usb, and when I booted into the live cd I had internet access via wire.

I then proceeded to re-installing the OS and everything works as expected.
