Okay. So, I just installed Kali Linux 2018.1 on my computer as the host operating system. And I have a wired internet connection. So, I opened the terminal to use ping yahoo.com and I get this:

PING yahoo.com ( 56(84) bytes of data

And after that... nothing. The cursor keeps blinking and nothing happens. I waited for 15 minutes but nothing else comes up. I tried typing other commands like cls exit but they don't even respond. Then, as I typed Ctrl + C to end, I got:

--- kali.org ping statistics ---
213 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 217095ms

At first I thought maybe I am not connected to the internet but that's not case because I'm using Firefox on my Kali OS to write this question. So, can anyone please tell me that I am doing wrong here... quick?

    Your question is really hard to read. Please edit it to improve readability. Proper capitalization, punctuation and paragraphs will help a lot. – gronostaj Apr 8 '18 at 9:13

  • What does ifconfig give you? – Tim_Stewart Apr 15 '18 at 16:18

try this

systemctl stop firewalld

then, do this to see if any extra rules blocking anything

iptables -nL

check out other commands such as traceroute and mtr, arp if needed. Of course you set firewall and things back to what they were.

systemctl start firewalld

You can also switch back to iptables if you are familiar with firewalld yet.
