[Moderator note: this post, and the first two responses, were originally attached to Can ping and access Google but no other sites on internet. -Hu]

Hey guys, I've also having same issue here but I'm in same situation as kmb346, I don't have the /etc/conf.d/net file and neither echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" >> /etc/resolv.conf is not working for me.
Any other ideas? Or kmb346 have you figure it out?
Thanks!

does "ping 8.8.8.8" work?

Are you running openrc? and if so is netifrc installed?

try my network for dummies or open a thread for your problem, because obviously, your problem is not the same as him.

resolv.conf supports a limited number of addresses (2, 3?) so echoing a new address to the end of the file does not necessarily mean it will be used.

Try `dig @8.8.8.8 google.com` or `nslookup google.com 8.8.8.8`. If those work, make a copy of the current resolv.conf and then overwrite it with just "nameserver 8.8.8.8", without quotes, then chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf.

saturnalia0: please do not suggest using immutable files without explaining the consequences.
