connect Network is unreachable error on ping

I'm trying to ping google's DNS but I keep getting this error:

connect: Network is unreachable?

Also, I'm unable to install anything and my sudo apt-get update command gives weird errors. What's the issue here?

You need to set your default gateway. Follow these steps:

  • Open terminal
  • $ sudo su
  • $ route add default gw (eg:192.168.136.1) eth0
  • go to 'nano /etc/resolv.conf'
  • add these lines
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 127.0.1.1
  • sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart or service networking restart

Hope this will help you!

Thanks.
