Lambda Blade: internet not working

As stated, I don’t have an internet connection on the the Lambda Blade, despite having plugged in a functioning Ethernet cable. When I plug the same Ethernet cable into my laptop, I have internet.

There are a few possibilities for bad internet.

  • Ethernet cable plugged into wrong port
  • DNS improperly configured

Ethernet cable plugged into wrong port
Look at the rear of the machine. Ensure the Ethernet cable is plugged into one of the Ethernet ports circled in the image below. The third, upper-left Ethernet port will not work, as it is for IPMI only.

DNS improperly configured
To resolve this:

sudo ln -s /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
systemctl restart resolvconf

And you should get internet.

Same problem happened to me. And the solution worked for me as follows:
$ sudo ln -s /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
$ systemctl restart resolvconf

The softlink is the solution.

@akilan has the correct solution here. The mis-configured internet is due to the fact that you might have skipped over the DNS configuration in the setup step.

None of the solutions described above helped us. We still cannot connect to the internet. Can you please assist us?
