Ubuntu: Local share access problem



Question:

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         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 wlan0  192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   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


Solution:1

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
