Network not working in Linux Mint Hyper-V VM
Posted on 2014-02-09
I setup a test VM to try out Linux Mint. I am using the v15 KDE 64-bit distro. It installed fine except I cannot get the network to work. I setup a legacy network adapter in the Hyper-V settings. When booting up Mint, it is able to obtain an IP address from my DHCP server. I am also able to set a static network config.
In the console, I can ping the IP address of eth0 and the loopback, but I cannot ping the gateway IP or DNS server, or any other IP on the network, nor do I have Internet access.
I am very lost on what went wrong. I'm still a Linux novice, but I found my way to the network manager and confirmed all settings were correct, but I still cannot ping the gateway or access the Internet. Any ideas?
