Ubuntu: Local share access problem


since my last boot I've been having a weird issue: I can easily access the internet, and ping various websites, however I can't ping any address on my local network. I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 with Gnome 3 desktop.

this is my routing table:

Kernel IP routing table  Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface  default         UG    0      0        0 wlan0     *        U     9      0        0 wlan0  

I have no idea if the metric is wrong but I wouldn't know how to change that anyway. Does anyone have a solution? What more information do you need me to post to figure out the issue?

Thanks for the help


ok, so after trying with ethernet port and after the help from 2707974 I managed to solve the problem. apparently metric 0 was the problem, the ethernet interface worked allright and the metric value was 1, so i changed the metric value of the wlan interface and everything got back to normal, to change that I used:

sudo ifmetric wlan0 1
