I had wanted my Win XP Home dom U to contact my wireless router to get an IP from the DHCP server inside the router. But it couldn't see the wireless router at all (via wired connection).

Similarly other devices on the same network could not see my Win XP dom U.

I was able to get networking up for Windows Dom Us using OpenSUSE 11.1 Xen paravirt ops dom 0 host. But apparently I can't do it in Fedora 11 host. Puzzled.

Dear Caz,

I have the Intel Corporation 82567LM-3 Gigabit Network Connection on my Intel DQ45CB Desktop Board.

There is only one network interface on my computer and it is eth0.

When I start xend, it creates ethernet bridge eth0. My Dom 0 and Win XP Dom U share the same ethernet bridge.

On Dom 0, IP address is configured on the bridge eth0. In my Win XP dom U configuration, I specified vif = [ 'bridge=eth0' ]

So my Dom 0 and Dom U are sharing the same bridge, and hence the same physical network card.
