Kodi internet not connected. Check network settings. Computer connects to internet ok
#1
I have been using Kodi for a long time and all of a sudden it cannot connect to the internet starting about a week ago even though there is no change made to anything. System Information -> Network says that Internet is not connected even though my Mac can connect to the internet without a problem. I can browse the internet fine. I also have another computer with Windows 10 that has Kodi and on the same home network and it works just fine. The Kodi network connection problem only occurs on this Macbook. Firewall is turned off. Bottom line is that the network is not the problem. I read some threads that DNS service might be an issue. Changing from my ISP to Google DNS to VPN does not resolve the problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Kodi and it still persists.

The log file has a lot of CCurlfile errors

Kodi 18.4 Leia Log file. Updating to 18.5 still the same problem. 
Mac OS Mojave

I am stumped. What could possibly break this? Thanks for any recommendation.

If it were a full DNS problem (via your router), then the other computers in your network would be affected as well.
Changing a DNS entry in your router(?) to something as a VPN is a bit illogical to me.
Still, how about simply changing the DNS entry to another DNS server first, like 1.1.1.1 or Google's backup DNS 8.4.4.8 as the main DNS address?

Kodi works off the internet connection of the OS it is running on.
So let's start with the DNS part. Can you access the http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt and http://www.w3.org/ sites with a browser?
Also in the log, the link to the Leia addons also has a problem.
(BTW, I have no clue what Kodi is to do with the w3.org website)

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I would agree that DNS ought not to be the problem but I was trying anything I could find on Google about this issue. I also changed the DNS on my local Mac where the Kodi is installed to Google DNS (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) or the ISP default router via Gateway, it did not solve the problem. Note that throughout this time, the internet connection on my Mac works just fine. 

I can access http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt and http://www.w3.org/ on my browser. No problem with those links. 
Chrome, Firefox, Safari all work fine. I can watch Netflix. Kodi is the only one not connecting on this particular computer. Kodi on another computer (Windows) works just fine so the router should be okay.

Thanks again.
