    Default BT4 VMWare image: networking broken ...

    All,

    Just got the BT4 VMware image up and running, mostly, using VMware Fusion 3.0.1 on a MacBook. Problem is, networking is non-functional. The eth0 interface is there, and I have tried using both NAT and Bridged virtual modes, but nothing seems to take.

    Did a quick search on the forums and didn't find the answer.

    Hints?

    Jake

    Have you started networking?
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/networking start
    For WLAN you need USB wlan dongle.

    isn't there any way around this issue? None of the vm programs support the built in wifi card?

    no. none. if you want to use your built-in wifi, you're going to have to live boot backtrack, or do a hard drive install. oh, and our apple cards aren't supported very well. i'll be working on getting mine up shortly, and when i do, i'll be writing a tutorial on it.

    don't expect any magic if yours eventually works, apple's wifi cards are typically broadcom and again, are poorly supported.
