Default Explora not connecting to the internet

All my other devices are connected to the internet using my router, but the explora just won't connect. It shows that router is connected but says no internet.

Have a look at DStv channel 197 which shows explora tutorials all day long.
the segment that is about connecting to the internet is in 2 parts. Which you need to follow depends on the kind of router you have.

This might be a stupid question, but do you have a "DSTV wifi connector"?

You don't need a Wi-Fi connector, provided you are prepared to run a LAN cable from your LAN router to the decoder.

This is by far the better way to do it from a signal quality point of view than using a Wi-Fi extender.
Spare decoders: SD PVR(3) PSU's, DSD 660, 1110, 1131, Explora 1.
Spare switches and LNBs: 1 x 5-1(repaired); 1 x 5-2.Numerous so called faulty LNBs that were easily repaired.
2 unmentionable FTA decoders
1.2m antenna, 8-way universal LNB, 2 x (2x6) MS, FSM permanently connected.
