Windows 10: Internet connection problem on Windows 2000 VM
Just tried changing the network from NAT to bridged (the replicate physical network connection state checkbox was left unchecked) but still no connection.
Currently using wifi though I have wired on here as well.
On a VM the W2K O/S doesn't need to worry about Wifi or LAN since it's the HOST that controls access.
The VMware virtual adapter should take care of everything -- usually a 1Gb/s connection -- although if Host wifi is slow you obviously won't get 1Gb/s Internet access on the VM.
Virtual hardware is the whole point of being able to run legacy OS'es -- for example you couldn't run W98 with a screen resolution of 4K (the new Ultra HD TV's). Works fine as a VM though !!!.
My VM is using virtual hardware version 5. The internet speed is 1Gbps on the VM but my host internet is nowhere near that speed. Heck, sometimes I can't even get 1Mbps out of it.
I'm still having my problem; replies seem to have dried up.
I tried editing the VMX file as stated on https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/mi...externalId=507 to no avail. I also read that use can use SysPrep to change the USID, however SysPrep doesn't seem to be available on Win 2000.
Do you have the latest service pack for 2000? Did you try my suggestion of using it in bridge mode?
Yes, it didn't work.
If using VMWARE did you install VMware tools on the VM. For Virtual box it's VBOX additions.
I'm getting no problems with W98 VM with the HOST wifi adapter as a 5GHZ USB3 wifi adapter. VM thinks it's Ethernet LAN !!! and works brilliantly. USB3 and wifi - especially 5GHZ were still science fiction dreams in the time of W98 !!!!
Host is running latest version of W10 pro X-64 VMware workstation rel 12.1.
@jimbo45 The VM already came with VMware Tools. I'm using Windows 10 Home X64 and my version of VMware Workstation is 12.5.2.
I'll fish out a copy of W2K and see what happens. I've only got W2K Pro though.
I didn't use too much of W2K as I thought W23K (Win2003) was far better for desktops and I even fiddled around with W23K server to make it work really well as a desktop OS too.
Might take me a few days as I've got a couple of other projects on currently but I'll definitely have a go for you -- installing this type of VM on decent hardware shouldn't take too long --I'll probably have to filch an ISO from somewhere but I've got a valid key.
Hello guys, I recently upgraded my Windows 10 32bit to 64bit and have noticed that my internet speed has dropped dramatically. After hours of trying solutions online I could not seem to find out what the problem was. On 32bit my internet was fine...
My laptop connects with WiFi, it also shows that the internet connection is available but when I try to brows through any web browser it doesn't. It shows that can't connect to web.. What is the problem? I am not understanding, even I tried...
Hello.Recently i installed windows 10 but i can't get my connection to work.I installed/reinstalled my network driver,disabled the power management features but still nothing changed.
I'm using huawei hg655b and realtek pcie gbe family controller....
I have a weird problem with my internet connection.
After i had instaled win 10, my interned slowed down.
