Hello I'm new to proxmox, I had installed and could not access the web gui, when trying to fix it could not update, when pinging google got name resolution, but when pinging got results. I also discover that I don't have these files /etc/pve/dhcpd.conf, /etc/dnsmasq.conf, /etc/systemd/resolved.conf. I have a gigabit motherboard, i3 processor, 16gb rm, 240gb SSD and 1tb HDD, because the NIC wont let me install proxmox, I got an Intel I225-V NIC.

cat /etc/resolv.conf output in Image 1

systemctl status pverpoxy.service output Image 2

cat /etc/hosts output Image 4

Can anybody help to indentify what's wrong???
1.) you shouldn't use a domain you don't own as your domain (so no proxmox.com)
2.) don't use wifi, see here: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/WLAN
3.) don't give an OS more than one IP in the same subnet (so either use, or but not multiple at the same time)
4.) you can only have one gateway but you use two
5.) you IP should be in /etc/hosts which is only one of the 3. So in case you decide to keep the or you would need to add that there.
6.) PVE is no router by default, so there is no /etc/pve/dhcpd.conf, /etc/systemd/resolved.conf or /etc/dnsmasq.conf
7.) resolv.conf for DNS client is located at /etc/resolv.conf
