#840 new defect

Network link not coming up in VirtualBox (Intel Pro/1000)

When running HelenOS in VirtualBox?, HelenOS DHCP client fails to obtain an address (dnscfg prints "Nameserver: none") and link state is shown as down.

VirtualBox? can emulate two different PCnet adapters (not supported by HelenOS) and VirtIO-net (not supported by HelenOS). It can also emulate three different Intel Pro/1000. If I use one of the two MT models, I get symptoms as above. For the other, T model, I don't get a NIC instance.

It seems currently there is no VirtualBox? configuration in which we could get networking to work. Also note that the default network adapter for OS Other - Other/Unknown? is PCnet-FAST III, which we don't support at all.
