    Lost network access in all VMs after 8.1 upgrade.

      Today I upgraded my host machine to Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. I did the upgrade through the Windows store. THere were no errors or problems during the upgrade.


      However: The host machine has a Qualcomm E2200 network adapter, and it is running the so-called "Killer" network manager software on startup. After the 8.1 upgrade, when the machine did its final restart, The Qualcomm network manager opened with a message that the LSP was not mapped properly. I clicked "YES" to remap it. Probably a stupid move on my part.


      Subsequently, I have lost all network connectivity in all my VMs. I have VMs for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 RTM (not the Preview), and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. ALL of them have lost the network.


      The host machine has no network problems at all, and is running fine after the upgrade.


      Any thoughts or suggestions to reset the network connections in the VMs?


      All of the VMs are set to use NAT.


      Oh I should also say that the host machine is running WMware Workstation 10, and everything was fine+dandy, never had any issues at all until this upgrade/LSP remap thing. I did reinstall VMware Tools in the Windows 8.1 VM, with no effect at all.
