    In some cases when using dhcp it is necessary to enter your IP provider's DNS address in /etc/resolv.conf
    It may be that dhcpcd is assigning your router/modem address as the DNS, in which case it may be impossible to access the internet.

    Just add the following lines to /etc/resolv.conf


    xxx. etc replace with the appropriate values for your providers DNS, primary and secondary.
    In most cases you can delete any address assigned by dhcpcd in resolv.conf.

    Hope it works for you.
