New laptop installation will only ping and connect to


I have a laptop that was running Mageia 5. It worked fine and could connect to anything else on my subnet. I have done a fresh install to Mageia 6 and now I can only "talk to" Said address is the DHCP server and ADSL router - I can get Internet just fine as well. It's just no other device on the 192.168.0 subnet that I can talk to.

My firewall is switched off, the previous install worked fine, so I don't think it's either of those things. I don't know what to try or what information to post. So, if anyone can suggest anything that I can do/info I can give I'd be most grateful.

Many thanks.

Many apologies for the long delay. I don't know why or how, but it just started magically working. I can only assume an update fixed it.
