Starting with r14, new installation process has been simplified. If you are coming from a different rom, do this:

1. Flash release 11 clean, reboot (don't bother with Gapps or Magisk, you don't need them here) and let system run for a few minutes; then flash the latest release dirty; flash Gapps
2. Reboot and finally flash Magisk or Supersu
3. If you don't get setup wizard on some versions of Gapps, just create or login into your Google account
4. Enjoy the rom, say thank you or donate

Rom has a script that gets initiated in ramdisk that cuts off the internet until you install and enable Afwall. This is done to prevent data leaks and battery waste, as literally every system and data app connects to the Internet. You should only allow to connect the apps you need, like messengers, browsers etc. However, this script is optional and could flashed separately for extra protection, but out of the box, you will have no problem connecting..
