No network connectivity in KVM/Qemu guest

Hello and thanks for reading. I've successfully installed a Debian guest using the Qemu entry in the Arch wiki and have no connection to the internet from the guest. According to the wiki networking is just supposed to work out of the box. ip link in the guest shows that eth0 is up. The command I'm using to start the guest is: qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1G -enable-kvm -drive file=image_file,index=0,media=disk,format=raw.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I installed Centos7 into another VM and it's connected, so it must have been the Debian installer.

Same problem

I tried to install Debian on a qemu VM twice: yesterday and today and had the same problem as you. I did netinstall with debian and download works during installation but not when booting the machine after installation. Usermode networking in Ubuntu and Windows7 works fine so it seems like the problem is related to Debian.
