VMWare Workstation no DNS/Internet

Your dns is likely wrong. But we need more context/info.

Please do not post screenshots - text configs are better.

Please copy the output of the following commands and post it here using the "Preformatted text </> " button:
Remember to redact passwords, MAC addresses and any public IP addresses you may have:

cat /etc/config/network

cat /etc/config/dhcp
cat /etc/config/firewall

Also, what is upstream of this device?

I am trying to install openwrt via vmware workstation

Ok. So upstream is a vm host system? Does openwrt have network connectivity? Test this from an ssh or terminal session into the openwrt system.

ping google.con

And we still need to see your configs.

Please post text output, not screenshots.

Anyway, you do not have any network connectivity.

Read the guides here


I am new to openwrt.Please help to solve this issue

The documentation is very good - please read it. You need to establish network connectivity from your vm host to the guest os (I.e. openwrt)


Thankyou .

Hello I tried doing steps from the documentation but still the same problem.

Select the text and copy it. Control c or command c. Then paste. If that doesn’t work, google is your friend.

Can you please me in network connection

  • Please show how you configured the interfaces on the host
  • Please paste your network configuration - cat /etc/config/network

You need to learn basics of your system before openwrt even comes into play. Please use google or whatever search engine you prefer to find information about these things.


What you pasted is not what I requested:


Please post text output, not screenshots.

Lastly, you did not show/display the host network interface configs for the OpenWrt guest VM.

:bulb: @psherman - I just realized, the OP may not be able to paste text yet. It's a VM and they don't have network connectivity.


We can see that eth0 is used for both the lan and wan. That won’t work. However, you need to read the documentation to lean how to establish network connectivity from the vm host to the openwrt vm.

You may be better served by getting a hardware device that you can use with openwrt, since then the default state should “just work”. VMs are more complicated and seem to be beyond your current capabilities.


I am a student I need to install Openwrt and connect it to honeypot to collect data.

Its the output of that command
