VBox 4.3.12 NIC: [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE]
I have not experienced this yet with earlier ReactOS releases, like 0.4.11.
But sometimes using the carrier releaser gcc dbg linux build of
0.4.12-RC-28-g4c1b17e, I experience the following symptoms right after 3rd stage bootup:
- no network icon in systray
- devman displays an error on the NIC "Code 31"
- ping www.google.de is not possible
- ping 22.214.171.124 is not possible
- rebooting does not help to solve the issue
I even had cases, where the problem persisted even after a completely fresh installation with that same ros iso.
I do know for sure, that it affects gcc4.7.2 linux builds, gcc 8.4.0 linux builds and gcc4.7.2 windows builds, and gcc 8.4.0 windows builds.
