I just got a Dell XPS laptop with Ubuntu 16.04. I would like to setup a bridge for my VMs so that they can join the same network that my laptop is on. I want them each to have their own IP on the network.
How can I setup such a bridge? I'm primarily on one of two wireless networks: work and home. I'm never on a wired network.
I've followed a number of different tutorials, but they all end with my wlp interface never coming up.
The easiest way to reproduce the problem is to have a /etc/network/interface file that looks like this:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto br0 iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports wlp58s0 bridge_stp off bridge_fd 0 bridge_maxwait 0
The walkthroughs that I took that from had eth0 where I put wlp58s0, because I don't have an eth0 because I guess the naming scheme was changed as part of systemd changes. (Note: I'm using network-manager, not systemd-networkd).
Thanks in avance!
