I have an Ubuntu VMWare virtual machine that stopped having an internet connection after a forced a shutdown.
Upon inspection there were no connections in the Network panel of Settings.
I found this previous superuser question: Ubuntu: Missing network interface and no UI and miraculously the one and only answer worked!
Only problem is that every time I boot the vm back up I have to do the whole procedure again.
Worth noting that I don't have an eth0 interface but I have one called ens33 and that's what I used for the commands.
Does anyone know what's going on or how I can just automate the procedure so that it runs every time I boot? (ugly solution, I know, but I spent hours researching and that answer is the only thing I found)
