    Unhappy Can't ping (access internet) outside of local network.


    Hello, I'm newbie to linux based Operating Systems.
    I'm following youtube tutorial to install Arch Linux on my laptop.
    Currently I partitioned and formatted my hard drive.
    And now I need to install the necessary files on my system. To do so I need internet connection.
    I used wifi-menu command to connect my Wi-Fi network and successfully got my local IP and even ping is working on my local network. But I cannot ping google.com or 8.8.8.8 or anything out of my local network.
    I need a solution for my problem, I cannot use my laptop anymore cuz Arch Linux installation already broken my Win10 boot..

    Sounds like a routing issue, did you set correct route?

    I forgot to mention that issue was same on wired connection. However ping is not working, I could access to download the packages? And Seem to install successfully the base-devel. ( I think it was issue with that network configuration. ) But after hours of spending with this mess, it turned to be I followed EFI tutorial and my laptop only supports old BIOS install. And today I followed other tutorial and used other WiFi for installation (no ping issue this time). Everything seems working just fine at the moment. However Grub doesn't load my Windows 10. I think I could fix this issue today! Thank you for your reply.

    Edit: I think route was working, ip route showed some details, can't remember exactly now.
