Set VM1 as default GW and perhaps DNS in VM2.

We can't help you with "it doesn't work", move on, provide more info, or find someone who enjoys playing 1000 questions.

Is the VM:ed openwrt externally (as in LAN) accessible?

  • Make first interface Internal Network (Ubuntu should be connected to this network)
  • Make second interface bridged to Internet connection
  • Reset OpenWrt and it should get Internet by default

Provide details!


Openwrt has network. I have internet connectivity issue in Ubuntu.


You already have a thread: VMWare Workstation no DNS/Internet

In fact, follow my advice from there:

Openwrt has network connection via LAN. I want to connect two VM via custom specific network. But its not working.

  • Which one is it?
  • If you have connection via LAN, then your Ubuntu machine should be working
  • Please use the original thread - please do not make duplicated postings - VMWare Workstation no DNS/Internet

:spiral_notepad: Also, your VMWare Workstation network configs still appear unfixed:
