It doesn't say anywhere no internet access, but whenever I try to do anything that requires internet, it doesn't work.

sudo systemd-resolve --flush-caches this fixes the wifi temporarily (for around five minutes) but rebooting or just using it as is for a few minutes and the issue resurfaces. When I was on windows this issue was still present but flushing it once fixed it permanently. The driver manager says everything is up to date.

Explanation:- Your ethernet connection [enp8s0] is down, but your wifi connection [wlp10s0f0] is up.

Note:- considerable information about your system could have been safely omitted.

Since you have the fairly recent upgrade of Mint 20.2, you must have had a good internet connection to install/upgrade this.

Have you made any significant changes recently?

  • The wifi worked for sometime when i installed but then it stopped working. Like i said , flushing dns cache makes it works for like five minutes before it stops working again. I haven't made any significant changes but i did to something along the lines of ifconfig (wifi device name) up.

  • If this was running the ifconfig command, with no parameters, then this just displays the state of your machine network ports and is quite safe - the more "modern" way is to use the ip a command. Fixing anything by flushing the DNS cache is a probable indication of faults external to your PC. Jan 14, 2022 at 15:57
  • So what you're trying to say is that the issue is probably caused by the router/wifi incompatibility in some way with my laptop? That might actually be it as it works fine with mobile hotspots. I am from India , and the service provider i use is called Jiofiber, idk much about networking but could that help in determining what could be the issue?

  • Sounds like you need to contact your service provider. Jan 15, 2022 at 11:51
