this has been driving me mad for a week now, could use some fresh thought on the potential issue here...
Have BT5 R2 running on VMWare workstation 8. The network adapter is set to Bridged mode (hence the BT VM gets its own IP address from the gateway). The 'Replicate Physical network state' is checked.
My primary ways of getting network connectivity to the VM are the following. However, both of them are not working now. I have used both of these methods previously before the kernel upgrade.
1) Using a D-link DWA-125 usb adapter: This gets detected as an rt2800 usb device. However, I'm not able to detect a single wifi network when scanning with wicd (Confirmed that the preferences have the correct wlan interface). This happens even though i'm sitting next to the wireless router.
2) using a wired network. I brought up the interface and used the following commands
however, the dhcp client is not able to obtain an ip address from the gateway. Also, I'm not able to ping the gateway itself.
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1/24
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
echo nameserver 192.168.1.1 > /etc/resolv.conf
dhclient 3 eth0
I'm on version 3.2.6 of the kernel.
Any ideas / thoughts on what I'm missing? Thanks in advance for your time.
