[SOLVED] Solution see on the bottom.

Wireless connection. Never tried Ethernet because got no port on my laptop.

I'm getting connection refused everytime I visit a website, dnf update or dnf install or anything involved in internet connection. Turned off the firewalld, but no luck.

Sometimes website failed to load But watching youtube is fine. I need to try connecting it a couple time to get it connected.

I have 10Mbps connection Tried on Ubuntu & Windows 10 = Fast as normal, no problem at all.

I've encountered the network problem in Manjaro, but the case is SSL Certificate error.

I live in Indonesia.

dnf update



changed /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-SSID content DHCP=yes to DHCP=none

Sorry to let you know, but nothing you mention give us a clue of what your issue could be. If you read the message there is a problem with your Internet, there are many things that could be wrong, for instance have your check your network has ip when it fail, it is wifi or wire connection, when it fail can you ping to other devices on the network so many questions. Also what is your network card?

You may have an issue with the wireless card, there are some reports of issues, You could try to get Atheros proprietary kernel module compile and test it. With some wifi cards Atheros, Broadcom it may happed
