Hey guys. Just got done installing Fedora 25 on my Lenovo T420. Everything seems to work and I can get my wifi connected, but when I attempt to connect to a web page, Firefox says Server not found.

I have tried two different wireless adapters and my wireless card.

Pinging myself I get a hit, pinging my router I get "connect: Network is unreachable"

IP route comes up with nothing

Kinda a newbie so any help appreciated.

I've Googled this for about two hours now with still no luck.

What is the output of ip address on the terminal, what are the brand, model or chipset of your wifi cards?

Ip route gives me no output. It just goes to the next line waiting for a command. This is on root fyi.

Then some how you are not getting a gateway ip, so you network is not connecting. Check the configuration of your wifi network device to see you get the dhcp with route.

On my windows everything works fine with the same device. I would imagine it's something in between the network and the device, or the device doesn't load properly in Fedora?
