Hi altogether,

I want to get FreeDOS going within qemu.

I downloaded the respective iso-file and the installation went well.
In principle FreeDOS works fine with the exception of networking. I
simply can´t get qemu to let FreeDOS connect to the internet.

My command-line is:

qemu-system-i386 -m 32M -drive file=drivec.img,media=disk,format=raw
-drive file=FD12CD.iso,media=cdrom -boot order=d

or even

qemu-system-i386 -m 32M -drive file=drivec.img,media=disk,format=raw
-net nic,model=ne2k_pci -drive file=FD12CD.iso,media=cdrom -boot order=d .

According to the instructions on
  I installed FDNET, mTCP and wget
in FreeDOS. So things should work. Yet they don´t.

After a reboot FreeDOS says: "Error: Your ethernet card reported an
error for every packet we sent."
And with "-net nic,model=ne2l_isa" in command-line: "Your DHCP server
never responded and no packets were seen on the wire."

My terminal says: " Warning: vlan 0 is not connected to host network".
qemu montitor says:

info network

hub 0
\hub0port0: ne2k_pci.0:

I compared the values with those given on
They should be correct. So that´s it.

Curious thing however: When firing up any other OS, e.g. KNOPPIX with
qemu the internet connection works perfectly:
kvm --cdrom KNOPPIX_V7.0.5CD-2012-12-21-DE.iso -m 512 -boot d .

Does anybody know why that is and what to do?

Tnx a lot in advance.
