Wlan connection only!

Hi all,
I am completely new to this, i bought my raspberry pi 3 just before christmas and haven’t used it for anything yet!
right, I’ve downloaded Noobs from the Raspberry Pi site.
I’ve transferred Noobs onto my memory card.
Started up the Raspberry Pi with memory card, managed to get an internet connection, found OSMC and installed. Seemed like no problems to this point…
I’ve then gone through the OSMC setup, time zone etc, and when it gets to network it can’t find a network. So I finish the setup, and then gone to network settings.
My router is on the list, password in, CONNECTED. But there is no internet connection, just a connection to my router.
Am i being really stupid, is there something i need to change on my router to allow this to connect? Its a SKY router.
I really look forward to hearing from somebody with some help, as i have no idea what I’m doing and no idea what to search for online to resolve it. and its doing my head in!!!
thanks in advance

What is indicating to you that you have no internet connection? Because this could possibly be reported wrong in the Kodi System Info screen if that is the location you are referring to.

Hi thanks for the reply. I’ve tried to visit a link in file manager and a screen comes up saying that I don’t have an internet connection. Although my network settings say it’s connected to my network

You need to SSH into the pi and ping a known good address such as google. You need a second confirmation other than your “link in file manager.”

ok, i think I’ve done that correctly. and this was the result…

This indicates that the internet connection is fine, the problem is with your “link in file manager.”

ha, ok. thanks very much for your help. i think I’ve done the ‘ping’ correctly?
i followed the steps in the link you sent me, then typed ‘ping google.com

You’ve done the ping perfectly!

Next time though place any long terminal output / logs / media info on paste bin:

It looks like you have a network connection with Internet access.

Remember that Kodi isn’t a reliable indicator of whether you have an Internet connection.
