    Subsystem for Linux Disables Internet Access


    I thought that I would just explore the Windows Subsystem for Linux today. I enabled this feature in Windows and rebooted the system as the installation requested. Upon booting back up I found that I no longer had Internet access. Looking at the settings for my Ethernet adapter I found that several components were no longer bound to the adapter. In fact, the only 2 things still enabled are "Microsoft LLDP Protocol Driver" and "Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch". Furthermore, it won't let me re-enable the other components.

    Image1 below shows what my Ethernet adapter settings look like without the Susbsystem for Linux installed, Image2 shows what it looks like after installation of the subsystem.

    Any thought on this?

    I tried Microsoft's Bash on Windows about three years ago. I've been a Cygwin user for more than a decade, so I thought I'd try Microsoft's version of Linux emulation.

    It came up way short. Cygwin was much better. Much more complete. Oh well. I figured I give MS a few years to get BOW working properly.

    So here we are ... and it still has problems? No thanks. Cygwin is rock solid.
