Thank you again Captain,


I've attached a screen shot of the error I'm getting.   So I'm assuming that I'll need to connect my BBB to the router directly?

What is the BBB attached to now?  If you are tethering it to the laptop via USB, then yes you should connect the BBB ethernet to your router.

I'm talking to it via ethernet cable to Network Switch.  Then my laptop is also connected via Ethernet Cable to the Network switch.  My laptop has WiFi access to the router

If your BBB (that won't connect) and your Pi (that does connect) are both connected to the same Network switch or router, then I'm puzzled. Because it should work without problem. :(

At worst, a reboot usually fixes that sort of odd connectivity issue.

It sounds like you have a standalone switch that isn't connected to the router.  If the BBB is connected to that switch then it won't be able to get to the internet.   Plug either the BBB or network switch into the router.
