Hi

I have a private TAP network between colinux and my windows host. This uses eth0 and it works just as it did before installing VirtualBox
And then I have a winpcap/ndis connection to speak to the internet using the wlan interface of my laptop. This uses eth1.

Yes, both eth0 and eth1 show up there

These are my network connections: http://i.imgur.com/tvcRh.png

And these are the relevant lines from colinux.conf
eth0=tuntap
eth1=pcap-bridge,"wlan",00:1B:77:7E:B2:82

It doesn't matter if the VirtualBox network is enabled or disabled, and it doesn't matter if I use pcap or ndis.

This is /etc/network/interfaces
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.37.20
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.37.0
broadcast 192.168.37.255

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.0.42
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.0.254
broadcast 192.168.0.255
nameserver 192.168.0.254

I can ping both 192.168.37.40 and 192.168.0.103 which are the IP addresses of the windows host.
In fact (I just tested this) I can even ping 173.194.32.51, which is a google.com IP address. pinging www.google.com does *not* work however. And wget www.google.com gets stuck at "Resolving www.google.com..."

Great! That means there is hope for finding a solution :)
