Ubuntu 9.04 No Network Connection


I install Ubuntu 9.04 in VMware. After that I change network adapter "Host-Only" to "NAT" and boot up OS again. Network icon turn to cross red icon. No network connection. When I try to edit network connections, there is no adapter to edit. Please take a look at screenshot.

So, basically it is no longer seeing the adapter after just changing from "host-only" to "NAT"? That seems strange, what happens if you try hitting the "Add" button, does it see anything at all? Also, all worked fine before changing the settings? This may require some command-line fix, not my specialty, but let me do some research and see if I can come up with anything, in the meantime, let us know if you find out any more information that you think may be relevant.

Even if I add ip address, it doesn't add to physical NIC because network adapter hasn't been detect and show in the list. If there is a way to command Ubuntu to search for new hardware change, it might help.

Did you have to use ndiswrapper or anything of that nature to get it going originally or did it just work "out of the box" so to speak?

that definitely means that you didn't use it (LOL) it's kind of a pain to get working so you would remember. I'm wondering if there is a config file that we could trash that would rebuild itself and go back to the original config, just to start over and at least have your adapter present, save that config so that we have something to fall back on as we try fixing everything to your liking.

Edit: Let me try to figure out the config file we could trash and restart (possibly), but obviously you can try more stuff on your end as well.

I'm not sure what you are talking is related to my problem. I don't really understand. I'm looking for a solution to bring back my network connection while the network adapter is already present.

Well, let's wait and see if someone with some more knowledge will see this and hopefully help us out.

No, I haven't given up, but I am just doing searches and am not in front of any of my Ubuntu machines at night, actually I meant to get on one today and see if I could duplicate your issue, but was too tired and slept the day through to be ready for work tonite. It's just hard for me to troubleshoot an OS without being in front of it and only so much searching I can do. I do not give up that easily, and hope you didn't take it that way. I will hang in there with ya!!! Have you tried anything else in the last day or so? If so, please let me know and later tonight I may have some more stuff for you to try, if you don't mind However, if you were serious, and trying to be insulting, just remember, I am trying to help in my own time for free and do it with a smile, so, pardon me.
