Hello, everyone! I have a problem here. I'm running MS-DOS 6.22 under Virtual PC 2007 with the Intel DC21140 packet driver and for some reason, the internet doesn't work when I set the first adapter to use Shared networking (NAT). For example, when I run the Arachne browser, I end up getting a Arachne Network Error (Unable to initalize TCP/IP) when attempting to access the Google homepage. Here's what the screenshot looks like: This next screenshot has the settings of what network adapter that I'm using: If I select "Lnksys WMP54G v4.1 Wireless-G PCI Adapter" and use the "192.168.254.X" IP address, I can connect to the internet under MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 just fine. But if I select Shared Networking (NAT) and use 129.168.131.x as the IP address, the internet doesn't connect at all. The Shared Networking feature works fine in Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and later. Is there anyway how to get the internet access working under MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1 using the Shared Networking (NAT) adapter under Virtual PC? Should I post the CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or WATTCP.CFG configurations to see what could be wrong here as well?
