how to get internet access for the host machine?

I want to do some update upgrade but seems that I can not get connection with internet. As a new kid on the block I'm a bit lost where to put the right credentials.. Looking at some settings it seems fine. But I must be missing something. Is it the Gateway or dns setting? I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated. I have a static ip

Your ip for the proxmox host seems to be and the gateway That suggests your router (normally the one from your ISP) is that If that is not correct, then you change there in the gateway the correct IP of the router. It needs to be in the same network. That means you can not have proxmox and your router on (for example). is my router so this is ok then? Or do I need the gateway setting, which is in the router itself? That is more or less like you mentioned something
So to me it is not clear why Proxmox can not access internet using the gateway ?

root@hp630:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface enp1s0 inet manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        bridge-ports enp1s0
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

search poxmox.lan

Code: localhost.localdomain localhost hp630.poxmox.lan hp630

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Ok sorted it out. It seemd to be the dns resolver. Having that the same as the gatweay made it work. Great.
