I want to use VM with NIC connected directly to the network. With this I can ping say cnn.com but I cannot browse to CNN.com. I can ping the router that gives the IP address and Internet connection, but cannot browse to it.
Very strange experience.Spent the whole day struggling on this.
If I use NAT most of it works, however the VM now uses IP from another subnet (DHCP from VMNet8) and that gives me trouble with the devices on the network which the VM is communicating with, they cannot talk back as intended. Their messages are not sent back to the IP address of the VM which is another subnet.
What I have noted is that if the host laptop is on WiFi the bridged connection in the guest works fine. However if the host is using wired connection (either the onboard NIC or the NIC on the USB C Docking station) the bridged setting for the host does not work. Can anyone throw some light on this. I would like to get everything working while using the wired NIC on the host as that gives me the maximum speed.
Hi i can confirm exactly the same problem.
It works over WLAN but not wired.
Tooks me one day, updating drivers, testing etc.
I found out it works with Version 15, seems like this problems starts with 15.5
