Network connection

Hi, I installed linux Fedora on a virtual machine, but the network connection is not working. All firewalls are off. Any ideas what is the problem? I am using WiFi.

Thanks in advance!

You can install wicd and use this to connect to the network. Check if that works for you.

If not give us the output of these commands:

ifconfig -a
netstat -rn
ping -c2 <ip adress of your router>
dmesg | grep -i "wifi"

It is working now!
Thanks a lot!
