I have a DO droplet running and after resizing I can’t connect to the internet..I emailed them but they are taking days to respond. At first the interface changed from eth0 to ens3 and I managed to change it back:

ifconfig -a:


ip addr:

Nameservers are set to and in resolv.conf. I’ve spent days trying to fix this with no avail.

Sorry, can’t copy and paste from console in browser so have to screenshot.

ping connect: Network is unreachable

ping Temporary failure in name resolution
