My router is set to have computers IP range from 10.1.1.1 to 10.1.1.60 I'm trying to run Linux in virtual box in a host computer with windows 7.
The host computer has 10.1.1.5 currently, which is dynamic, set by DHCP on the router. The command,
ipconfig, on the host computer shows the VirtualBox host only IP address 192.168.56.2 and Linux in it was well connected to the network.
But later I changed the IP address of Linux as static 10.1.1.16 using
vim /etc/network/interfaces. Then in the host computer's network configuration settings, I changed the IP address of VirtualBox as 10.1.1.16.
Now my Linux is no longer connecting to the network. I'm new to this and am attempting to learn how these things work. Please help in showing me, what did I do wrong?
