Some websites cannot be reached after upgrading to 18.04

Asked by Laurent Bertola on 2018-06-18


I was using Ubuntu 17.10 and everything was working fine, including wireless connection.

I upgraded today to 18.04 and now some websites cannot be reached. For example cannot be reached. I also cannot ping it:

PING ( 56(84) bytes off data.


And nothing happens.

Some websites I can reach without problem e.g.

Thanks for your help!

I think that has only to do with the website and has nothing to do with Ubuntu 18.04. Maybe a misconfiguration of the webmaster or something like that.

It is not just the ping, the website was impossible to reach in firefox and google-chrome and it was just an example, some other websites were also unreachable e.g.

But I have found a workaround in google, someone suggested to remove the ethernet profile from the network menu (I had one ethernet profile from a previous wired connection I no longer use). I did this and now everything works fine.

Can you help with this problem?
