[Qemu-devel] Networking difficulties

I now have Qemu working after reading archives of this list to figure out how to configure it. I have some people here who are waiting to upgrade from PowerMac G4's to G5's until there is decent Windows emulation available. At least one of these people will go ahead and buy a G5 if Qemu, on that machine will outperform Virtual PC on her old 400 Mhz G4. I think it does except for networking.

Network access worked immediately when I set Win2k for DHCP but it is dead slow and corrupts some downloads. It takes disproportionately long to load web sites and I can hardly use Windows network shares at all. It sometimes fails just opening folders on a remote disk. Anything I ping looses all packets yet I can get some access and browse the web. Internet access is, of course, fine on the host machine.

I'm running Windows 2000 Professional installed from an academic bulk-license CD on a 3 GB image on a dual 2 Ghz G5 with 2.5 GB RAM. I have been invoking Qemu with the RAM for the emulation environment upped to 512 MB rather than the default 128 MB.
