No connectivity to internet

Wed Aug 15, 2018 7:52 am

My RPI has been up and running for some time without a problem. It has now suddenly lost connection to the internet. I had a similar problem some time ago and found the DNS had changed. I have reedited the DNS to the new one but still cannot get a connection. I can connect to it remotely and it can see the Hub. Any help greatly appreciated.

Start by rebooting your router.

Undo your changes to /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/dhcpcd.conf. Then reboot your RPi.

A key question is:

What does the OP mean by "lost connection to the internet"?

What are the symptoms?

When you say undo changes do you mean leave it blank or put it back to what it was previously?

Undo changes means to put it back in its original state.

Thanks for all help - it now seems to work, though I changed nothing. Very strange. Appreciate all advice.
