I have windows 10 running as guest on a VM fusion service version 8.5.8. The windows system has the latest VM tools installed.

To setup the connection i select auto detect on Bridge connections but windows doesn't detect the network.

I try several things: - ipconfig /renew - Reinstall the vm drivers. - regenerate mac address for vm

Any pointers to investigate? Changing the connection should work seamless.


Find out. The problem was the router. The command ip /renew responded:

An error occurred while renewing interface Ethernet0 : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

When i disable Energy saving option on my wi-fi router, i was able to renew configuration by dhcp (doing ip/renew again).
