    The repro is:
    1. Start Mac
    2. Launch Parallels desktop
    3. Create a VM using LinuxMint 18 Sarah (I also tried with LinuxMint 17.3 and 17.1 same issues)
    4. Configure VM network to be Bridged -> Default Adapter
    5. Open a Terminal and type in "ifconfig" that should bring up the network interfaces config, look for a valid ip address x.x.x.x
    6. Still in the same terminal type in "ping google" and see that it pings correctly
    7. Make the mac sleep and wait 10 seconds
    8. Wake the mac from sleep
    9. Repeat steps 5 & 6
    10. Expected network connection is available and pings correctly
    11. Result: there is no valid ip address and pings result in "host unknown", or "no route to host", or other ping failures.

    What ironically works is VirtualBox <sigh>
