I did a fresh install of raspbian on an rpi-3 with the intent to follow this guide to set up an owncloud server However after some first steps, when I reboot and reconnect I get the strange problem that I cannot connect to any website anymore. I can SSH to fixed IPs but not to hostnames

pi@fry:~ $ ping www.google.com
ping: www.google.com: Temporary failure in name resolution
pi@fry:~ $ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=60 time=10.1 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=60 time=12.1 ms

It seems like somehow there's no DNS .. Does anyone have any idea what to do here?

I should perhaps add that one of the first things I do is to configure a static IP

interface wlan0
static ip_address=
static routers=

/etc/hosts   localhost
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
ff02::1     ip6-allnodes
ff02::2     ip6-allrouters   fry

These are my running services


Thanks for any suggestions!
