Ive poked around the wiki and FAQs and dont see this addressed (perhaps I overlooked it?)
I have DSL on a flash drive so i can run it with qemu inside windows (im aware of how to boot from it, but am not interested in it)
can i *get* network working with this or is that not possible with qemu? I have set up persistant storage on my flash drive, and Im familiar enough with linux to set up networking within the emulated OS, but is it something qemu supports or am I out of luck?
I had hoped to be able to work within DSL embedded where i wanted to take it for a small handful of things, thanks Qemu's network layer sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't. To the guest (DSL) it looks like an ethernet card and a dhcp server, it's either qemu or the host OS that has trouble when networking doesn't work.

well i poked around the qemu site briefly and my dsl-e is seeing the qemu-provided realtek interface
ill look a bit more this afternoon and see if i can find a way to make it work reliably. otherwise it really isnt worth much to me, given the reason id like to have it.
thanksNormally network access via Qemu is trivial. DSL running in qemu does the usual request for an IP. Qemu respnds with 10.0.2.15 and the routing is automatically passed through your host (Windows) network. Of course your Windows network must be functional.
Qemu does provide advanced network access, but that becomes a Qemu question/setup.
