Your dhcpd.conf file worked fine. Thank you.

I still wasn't able to get vbe to work. Everything looked in order, but no 
connection. I may have messed up the install of vbe. 

Anyway, I decided to try and configure tun0 direct. After *much* ado I've 
finally got my connection (almost). I would have never pulled it off with the 
knowledge gained from you. 

My Qemu network now connects to network shares, and I have a working internet 
connection under Linux guests.

no net. Even switching to -user-net doesn't help, so it's probably a Windows 

Only thing left to try is reinstall Windows and see if that helps.
