I'm having "problems" with my Rpi 4 connection. Well, more than problems is that I think there's something I don't understand.
So the thing is that I have my Rpi connected to both wired network with eth0 interface and wireless network with the wlan0.
The thing is that the wired connection is a local network to I've made with an old router to communicate my computers but that actually don't have internet access. The internet access of the Rpi is via the wireless connection.
The problem that I have is that when I have the wired connection on the Rpi doesn't reach internet. I think this is because the it chooses as default gateway the one of the wired connection, which has no access to the internet. If I unplug the ethernet cable then the Rpi can access the internet with the wireless connection.
When both networks are on the route table locks like this:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ route -n Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 202 0 0 eth0 0.0.0.0 192.168.43.5 0.0.0.0 UG 303 0 0 wlan0 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 202 0 0 eth0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 100 0 0 eth0 192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 303 0 0 wlan0
If in this configuration I ping I get:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ping raspberrypi.org PING archlinux.org (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. From default (192.168.1.1) icmp_seq=1 Destination Net Unreachable From default (192.168.1.1) icmp_seq=2 Destination Net Unreachable ^C --- raspberrypi.org ping statistics --- 2 packets transmitted, 0 received, +2 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2ms
however, if I ping when only the wireless is connected I get:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ping raspberrypi.org PING raspberrypi.org (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=1 ttl=49 time=146 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168): icmp_seq=2 ttl=49 time=145 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199): icmp_seq=3 ttl=49 time=176 ms ^C --- raspberrypi.org ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 4ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 144.969/155.480/175.623/14.254 ms
I would like to know how I can make it so that the system chooses the connection gateway to the internet that actually has connection to the internet, or to be able to choose the wireless network over the wired to connect to the internet.
I would like, if possible, to do it without having to touch the dhcpcd.conf file and having to set a static IP.
Thanks a lot!
