DescriptionInstalled manually with no issues, added local IP, DNS server and Default Gateway on installation. When logged in shows wired connection is up. Checked the Network settings and shows all addresses entered on initial install. When try to ping says network unreachable. Used *route* command and there is nothing showing in there for the Default Gateway, but all other information is there. Used *sudo route add default gw [IP address here]* and no information was updated. Have rebooted, reinstalled software, re downloaded ISO and changing the network details in the network settings.
Steps To Reproducereinstall software, or try to make the change live on the system. it happens every time.

Can you show me the content of /etc/network/interfaces ?

cat /etc/network/interfaces

Also the network-manager config:

ls -al /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/
cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/*

(before posting, please replace any credential stored in those files with XXXX)
