I can't connect to the internet on the pi itself and I cannot connect to the internet through the pi.

But the pi shows up on my phone when I search for access points, I can even connect to it with the password, but the internet won't work.

When I click on the two blue arrows pointing up and down in the top right it says "no wireless interfaces found." when I hover over it with my mouse it says:

"eth0: Link is down

wlan0: Associated with

wlan0: Configured"

I used this tutorial https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/access-point-routed.md

I found a similar question with no answer here I'm successfully running a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B as a WiFi access point, but I cannot connect to the internet through the Pi itself?

some comments said to post command outputs, so here is a link to the three commands they asked for https://imgur.com/gallery/WwMnY8v

Any tips?

Thank you

  • I gather internet access should be via eth0, and since eth0: Link is down, there's your issue - do you have a cable connecting it? Feb 23 at 4:39
  • Please execute the following commands on the command line and add its output to your question: ip addr and ip route.

  • @Ingo I have those commands in the imgur image Feb 23 at 17:24
  • @JaromandaX does it have to be connected through ethernet? Feb 23 at 17:26
  • @JaromandaX I plugged in ethernet and it changed to eth0: configured, but I still can't connect Feb 23 at 17:42

To have a decent answer here is the solution the questioner stated in a comment:

I found the problem, I plugged it into the wrong ethernet port. there was a light on the pi to turned on so I thought it was correct.
