Hello Sam,

You have two options

  1. Change your network adapter connection to Bridget and then :
service network restart
ifdown virbr0
ifup virbr0

Open in new window

2. or you have to change your interface bootproto to DHCP.

3.If that doesn't work with you, you can create a new interface "eth0" for example and try again.

Let me know if that work with you.
