    Very recently, I have started finding multiple times a day my Win 10 VM is reporting no internet, and an error on the ethernet adapter. Running the trouble-shooter fixes it with issue "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration". That's a fairly self-evident issue, I think it is reassigning an IP address - but I never had this before. It's not like it only happens if I leave the VM running for days on end, I get this throughout the day when I never did before.

    One thing I did note is that my ethernet network is setup as 192.168.2.xxx on my router. But the VM has IP 10.211.55.xxx. Does this have any bearing?
    My Mac is using DHCP but I think that's always been the case.

    I updated Parallels to latest 14.1.3 today and no effect. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 1803.

    In fact just the few minutes it took me to do this, it happened again. Could it me some power-save mode or something?

    BTW this is my VM configuration:

    I was seeing some posts from last year and their screenshots allowed options for explicit IP address, DHCP toggle, etc. Are these removed now in v14?

    Bump. Today I launched the VM and immediately it had no ethernet. Why is it doing this when it never used to? Something on my host system?
