      I just updated my vmware fusion to 8.5 and now I can't connect to the internet anymore.

      I tried renaming the interface to eth0 using ip link set and then restarting the networking service, but to no avail.
      dhclient isn't able to give a dynamic ip address. I gave it a static ip address still doesn't work!!!

      Note, that the internet was working perfectly fine before upgrading vmware version.

      Any help would be sincerely appreciated?
