Ive setup my little debianserver as a dhcp/dns server using dnsmasq. Everything is working perfectly fine, i do get an internal address assigned. I have a connection to the internet. The dns servers from my isp also work. However despite it working elementaryOS tells me in the top right corner that i do not have an internet connection and in the network settings everything is Unknown. Yet when i type ifconfig in the terminal everything is configured properly. This would not be a big deal since everything is mostly working, BUT the AppCenter is not. I cannot download anything in the AppCenter anymore as it also complains about no internet connection. The funny thing is the Network settings in elementaryos even seem to track how much i uploaded and downloaded in my current session, with my supposedly non-existent internet connection.
Thats the output of ifconfig in case this helps.
