So my main goal is to create a test network with virtual machines. I am using virtual box for the virtual machines. In order to get the server to recognize the client i set it up to use virtual network adaptors 1 for the server and 1 for the client. Then i create a 3 connection bridge with the host connection and both virtual machines. This works perfect if i have it set to get the ip address from the dhcp. However, for my virtual machine that is a server i want to set a static ip address but when i do the connection no longer works it says limited or no connectivity. I dont know much about bridged network connections but i dont think the virtual machines cause a problem at all. Is there a general problem with having static ip's as part of a bridged network connection?

are you using the same network address mask and default gateway settings?

what is a network mask and i am using the same default gateway as the physical machines connected to the router. The more i look at it it might just be because the network connection on my phyical machine that is part of the bridge is wireless and i read that wireless connections dont work as well with network bridges as wired ones do so it could be inconsistent because of that maybe?

open command prompt and type

ipconfig
<Enter>

on both your direct machines and the "problem machine", compare the result. The address needs to be different, the network mask and gateway need to be the same. The DNS server entries need also be the same, do a

ipconfig /all
<Enter>

to see that information

ok i took out the wireless connection of the host from the bridged connection so now the bridge just has the 2 virtual network interface connections and it seems to be a nice little contained network. There is no internet access but thats ok. I'm going to try it with a wired connection when i can but that wont happen for a couple weeks.
