Forum: 

SIOCGIFINDEX failed! - Can't get a network connection

Marmaduke's picture

All was working fine, until I reset the computer (Turnkey LAMP running in VMWare Server) and now it cannot get a lease from any DHCP server and setting a static IP does nothing.

 

There are 2 errors in startup that I am not sure whether were always there:

 

Host SMBus controller not enabled!

and

udhcpc[3560]: SIOCGIFINDEX failed!: No such device

 

The latter is more likely to be the problem, but it eludes me why it would start to produce error after a simple restart.

 

I'm really liking the package so would like to get this fixed instead of moving on, thanks!

Nevermind, seems VMWare Server still has kinks with Windows 7, moved it to an XP Pro x64 box and it works fine again.

I've got the same problem using Windows 7 64Bit. Has anybody found a solution?

P.S. With VirtualBox it's working fine

Probably worth someone who is experiencing it to report it to VMware so they can try to fix it.
