I'm having the exact same problem as the poster of this question: "connect: Network is unreachable" on a working wlan0 (connected) interface

However, if I try the poster's solution of adding a missing Gateway IP with the following command:

sudo route add default gw (my ip), I will still get an error:

SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable

Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be? Thank you!

  • Is the "(my ip)" part the address of your router, or your local machine? It should be your router's address, i.e. the thing that connects you to the internet. – Błażej Michalik Aug 4 '16 at 9:28
  • Put your ip, or even better, put your route -n command output and let us know what is the ip of your gateway. We will give you the direction to follow! – OscarAkaElvis Dec 13 '16 at 23:18
