No Internet on VMWare WS w/ Linux 2.6.22 kernel

Jump to solution

I'm able to use VMWare WS v. 6.x with no problems on kernel 2.6.20, but not with the current 2.6.22 kernel. I've applied the any-any patch build 112, which permitted me to compile all modules. VMWare loads and will boot my guest OS (Win2K Pro). All is fine with the guest -- but no Internet connection. If I revert to an older kernel and recompile modules, everything is hunky-dorey again.

Here's the pertinent info:

Thanks for any advice. Meanwhile, it's not that big a deal to revert to an older kernel, but this is the sort of thing that I like to get to the bottom of if possible.

Thank you for this patch. Now bridged network is working with my kernel 2.6.23-rc8 with Wireless LAN.

I have updated the patch to also work when no wireless network is used. You can download it here:

http://www.hauke-m.de/fileadmin/vmware/vmware-wireless.patch

The patched vmnet.tar can be founfd here:

http://www.hauke-m.de/fileadmin/vmware/vmnet.tar (it is based on the vmnet out of the VMware Workstation 6.0.1)

Hi clawhead,

The output from " ps auwww | grep -i bridge " should have looked something like the following

root 6841 0.0 0.0 1504 160 pts/0 S 21:38 0:00 /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge -d /var/run/vmnet-bridge-0.pid /dev/vmnet0 eth1

In your case, vmnet0 is not Bridged to any interface on the host and this is why you have no networking.

Run vmware-config.pl script again and select the "Editor" option when making network changes. When prompted for the network # to change, select 0 (zero) and configure for "Bridged" using "eth1"

Thanks, KevinG, for the help with this. Unfortunately, I still don't have proper networking with a 2.6.22 kernel even after I ensure that vmnet0 is bridged to eth1.

As I said, when I use the same configuration but with a 2.6.20 kernel, all is well. Strangely, however, the output of "ps auwww | grep -i bridge" still doesn't display as you said it would, even though networking and Internet are working fine. Here's what I get from "ps auwww | grep -i bridge":

root 8024 0.0 0.0 3180 772 pts/2 R+ 11:04 0:00 grep -i bridge

I think I'll drop this for now and just wait for the community and/or the VMWare people to get things jiving again.

Regardless, I learned more about VMware's inner workings thanks to your suggestions.

Hi,

Without the /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge process running you will not be able to use Bridged networking. You may be able use NAT if that's an option for you.

It's possible that you had compile errors with vmnet module and this is why /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge is not running.

Have you tried Petr's any-any-update112 patch?

Hi,

Without the /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge process running you

will not be able to use Bridged networking. You may

be able use NAT if that's an option for you.

But I am able to use bridged networking with kerneal 2.6.20.

It's possible that you had compile errors with vmnet

module and this is why /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge is not

running.

Have you tried Petr's any-any-update112 patch?

Yes, that's what permitted me to compile modules against the 2.6.22 kernel. At least it appeared that the modules all compiled correctly. The compilation process appared to complete when I used the any-any-update112 patched kernel 2.6.22. But maybe I missed an error message.

I'll run the tests again later today and report back.

Thanks.

Also tried with any-any patch 113, same results (compiles fine, but no network on XP guest...)

Really no idea ??? As clawhead, when I boot on a 2.6.21 kernel and reconfigure vmware (without changing network parameters), it works perfectly...

Hi

I' m using VMware Player with vmware-any-any-update-113 and kernel 2.6.22.1. The Host is Ubuntu and Windows XP SP2 is running in the VM. The network is bridged to a Atheros Wifi card with madwifi driver svn r2625.

I have got the same problem with the bridged network, witch isn't working. I can ping host computer from the VM but I can't ping any other computer in the network. At first the ping to the host computer doesn't work either (the first packeges get lost) but ater some time every package gets to the host.

But pinging to or from an other client in the network to the VM wasn't working, I had a 100% package lose.

In dmesg I saw this:

In Wireshark I saw that vmware is sending an arp request 3 times "Who has 192.168.0.1? Tell 192.168.0.113" (192.168.0.1 is the IP of my router with OpenWRT and 192.168.0.113 is the IP of the Windows in the VM) but he doesn't get an response. At the same time the ping to the host is running very well.

Is there any kernel configuration with witch vmware's bridged network isn't working?

The same problem with an rtl8187 based Wireless LAN Card with a mac80211 based driver.

wlan0 = rtl8187

ath0 = atheros (madwifi)

Having also problems with:

  • Linux 2.6.22.1 for amd64 (SMP)

  • VMWare Workstation 6.0.

My problem is that, network (bridge) works fine, except betwen host and client machine. If i set an "static route" to the virtual machine via my router, it starts working, i mean:

Host IP: 192.168.0.50 (linux 2.6.22.1)

Client IP: 192.168.0.150 (another linux machine, or windows or whatever)

Host: route add 192.168.0.150 gw 192.168.0.1 (route through my firewall)

Client: route add 192.168.0.50 gw 192.168.0.1 (route through my firewall also)

If i setup this way, the net works fine.

Note: Ping always works fine

Any new ideas? Smiley Happy

Has anybody got this problem solved, yet? I'm still holding off on a kernel upgrade until a solution appears.

Thanks.

Does anyone know if Build 55017 takes care of this problem? I'm too lazy to install a new kernel to test it.

Thanks.

An answer to my own question: Yes, my initial installation and tests show that bridged networking is working properly with VMWare Workstation for Linux 6.01 (build 55017) running on a 2.6.22 kernel. I have a functioning Internet connection using the same VMWare bridged networking configuration that I had been using with kernel 2.6.20.

Others will want to verify.

Thanks.

I still have no internet from the guest OS with WS build 55017 on Fedora kernel 2.6.22.5-76.fc7. Note that my bridge is wireless, using madwifi 0.9.3.2. Perhaps ethernet bridges are working, but the wireless isn't.

Have you tried using the ath5k?

What exact physical wireless network adapter are you using? (make/model..etc)

Are you using WS 6.0.1?

Daguerre, you're right, at least according to my tests. Using kernel

2.6.22.6 (under Arch Linux) running WS for Linux 6.01 (build 55017) with a wired ethernet connection, I

get full networking, Internet included. When I have a wifi connection, I'm connected to

the LAN but not to the Internet.

My wifi adapter is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG internal. My machine is a Thinkpad T43.

Does this information lead us closer to a solution?

I also have a PCMCIA wifi adapter that I can test with to see if the problem is adapter-specific.

Note again that wifi and wireless work equally well with kernel 2.6.20 and WS for linux 6 as well as 6.01.

No wifi Internet connection with my PCMCIA wifi adapter, either (Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller).

My guest OS is Windows 2000 Pro SP4, by the way.

I'm using a Netgear WG311T. I just upgraded madwifi to the latest trunk, and no luck.

This is the first I've heard of ath5k! Sounds promising, but I could find any code. Is there an actual working development version for Linux?
