It looks like you are trying to use bridged networking so can you issue the commands below on the Domain-0 (main OS) and post the output:

`brctl show`

The main thing is to see if we have a physical interface that's bridge friendly, to make sure your bridge contains the ip address, and that the bridge contains the correct interfaces attached to it.
