First of all you stopped ping hitting ctrl+z so ping is not "pinging". ifconfig shows 199.1 MiB have been received and 14.2 MiB have been trasmitted through your wireless interface with no errors, so your connection is working. Maybe a misconfiguration of your browser? Try for instance 'sudo dnf update' and you will see that is actually working.

Yes. ^Z just puts the program in the background, it doesn't stop it. You need to use ^C to stop ping and get the final results.

^Z actually stops a program and puts it to sleep (so no output). To put any program in the background use bg after ^Z (no user interaction), to put it in the foreground (user can interact with the program) use fg. To end 'ping' (and many other programs/commands) use ^C as explained above.
