    Hi there,

    Not the most tech savvy but thinking this is a relatively easy fix.

    So a few weeks ago I lost the ability to connect to my home internet. Well, it connects but consistently reports "resolving host" when trying to surf the web. This is true too when I connect via ethernet cable. It's almost as if I just can't connect to wifi that require wpa as I decided to try and connect to "wifi hotspot" on my phone, to no avail.

    Strangely though when I'm in most public settings i.e. starbucks or mc donalds, I connect just fine, as evidenced by right now.

    I think there is a problem with my router, because my phone is able to use the internet at home just fine.

    I'm currently running Mint 17 qiana xfce on an aspire d250.

    Anyways, any help would be most appreciated.

    Delete the old connection from Lappy's wifi connections list and connect to the wifif router again.

    No dice.

    Deleted the wifi from my connections list and input pw. Still getting the same resolving host issue.
  4. Check your router configuration. Probably got something to do with ip, or dhcp or blocking.
    I don't know what configuration you got atm
