HELP!!!

I can't ping from the command line unless I change my WAN connection to DHCP. I currently have a static IP from my ISP so I'm needing to use my static.
The error message I get is "ping: cannot resolve google.com: Host name lookup failure".

Just pointing out: this is a dns issue (as the error message tells you). Try to ping an ip address and see if that works: ping 8.8.4.4 for example.

I am able to ping when I use my static now - I figured out this error only occurs when I load in my other static IPs into the Virtual IP Section on Opnsense. Any thoughts?
