Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Host: Ubuntu 9.10, Vbox 3.1.2 r56127 Guest: Windows XP SP3, bridged to wlan0 (wi-fi nic on hp dv2000 laptop)
Windows XP worked perfectly for a few months, then all of a sudden XP guest isn't able to receive an IP address from the Linksys router's dhcp server. Haven't changed anything, but 'maybe' Ubuntu update ran before it broke, not sure.
Tried switching different Vbox NIC controllers on XP guest. If i set static IP on the XP guest, I can ping LAN pcs and even surf the web for 5-10 seconds, but then Internet Connectivity stops. Can't ping public ips...
Thanks in advance!
