I install fedora in another hard drive (another one i have Windows 10 ) and boot from it .

and i can't connect to the internet on top right corner menu it keep saying "connecting" and it's been happening with every linux distro that i have been install so i keep format and changing til fedora but it's still happening.

On the router i set dhcp lease time to 24 hr i keep changing it but didn't help. but I think it's had something to do with ip cause i use Windows 10 in another HDD.

i use on-board ethernet ,my main board is Asrock H97 pro4 I don't think it's driver problem because when i try fedora live the internet were fine.

What's the problem ? I can't figure it out , is it dhcp,router setting or do i need extra configuration after install ? Please someone help me figure out how to fix it ,It's weired that is happening with all linux distro.

You have to share more details about your network. Is it a basic home network? or a enterprise situation?

Consider picking up a cheap USB Ethernet adapter and test with that. It could be that you need to update some packages but can’t do that because you can’t connect to the network.

Did you change any of the setting in your router at all?
