Internet access not working on CentOS but on Windows when travelling
Many thanks for all the quick and helpful answers!
Indeed it seems to be related to the DNS.
On CentOS, after connecting to the wireless network, I hacked the
/etc/resolv.conf generated by the NetworkManager and added Google
Public DNS to it.
I could then access all websites via their domain names.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of other issues with this particular
network (disconnecting all the time, also on windows), so I was not in
a position to test a more stable configuration.
