Thanks Steve for your reply.
It does not work either home or office. All this works fine before.
The host is on wireless and my VM's work before with the wireless adapters.
And just to make sure, i did not use wireless at home to test but use the
integrated nic card on my laptop. In the office, i have a docking station
with integrated nic port. I also installed long time ago an optional pci nic
card on the docking station so i can use it for VM's access to different
networks. So wireless, wired different nics, home or office which used to
work are not working.
At home: all computers are getting non-routable ip from home router
In Office: getting ip from our internal dhcp server
