  1. Crashing due to bridged connections.

    Hi so i keep having my pc crash due to bridged connections between normal home internet and usb thethered internet connection. Could it be that windows is just having a hard time with my mobile network? Because when i only use my phone network it doesn't seem to crash. And i would love to use the combined speed of my network and my phone.

    Network bridge suddenly stopped working in windows 10

    Hi Shantanu,

    To isolate your concern, we would like to know how your network bridge is connected? Is it a wireless connection or a wired connection?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you set up your network bridge to refresh the adapter and reconnect the other devices. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Add Incoming Connections from the Internet.
    • Bridge the two network connections that you want to use.
    • Forget the internal network connection (under
      Manage Known Networks).
    • Reconnect to your bridge network.
    • Restart your computer and check if your concern persists.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  3. Unable to bridge adapters

    Hi Damo,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    A network bridge is software or hardware that connects two or more networks so that they can communicate. You can create only one network bridge on a computer, but one bridge can handle any number of network connections.

    This issue may occur due to corrupt network drivers or settings.

    Try the method below and check.

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run network adapter troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    a. Type troubleshooting in the search box in taskbar.

    b. Click troubleshooting in the search results.

    c. Click "View all" and then click "Network Adapter".

    d. Click "Next" and follow on-screen instructions.

    Method 2:

    If issue persists uninstall the network adapter drivers and re-install the same and check if that fixes the issue.

    Follow the steps to uninstall the network adapter drivers.

    a. Press Windows Key + X and then click
    Device Manager.

    b. Expand Network adapters.

    c. Right on the Network Adapter and select uninstall.

    e. Restart the computer.

    Once completed, restart your computer. Your network adapter Drivers will automatically install.

    To creating a network bridge, follow the steps below:

    • In search type Network and Sharing Center and enter.
    • Now you can see different network connection. Hold down the Ctrl key and select each network connection that you want to add to the bridge.
    • Right-click one of the selected network connections, and then click Bridge Connections.
      If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Crashing due to bridged connections.

    Unable to connect internet in bridge mode in vmware

    Configure Networks in Workstation

    I would suggest you configure additional networks in VMware's Workstation the following way:

    1. Open "Edit" -> "Virtual Network Editor"
    2. Click on "Change Settings"
    3. Click "Yes" on UAC
    4. Click "Add Network"
    5. Select free VMnet network to be created
    6. When new network is added select it
    7. Select "Bridged (connect VMs directly to the external network)"
    8. Select under "Bridged to" your netowrk adapter which you have connected your host to your network
    9. Repeat steps 4 to 8 until you have created Bridged networks for all of your hosts NICs

    Configure your VM NICs setting

    Go to "Settings" of your VM and change the Network adapter setting "Network Connection" to "Custom: Specific virtual network" and try with each of the newly created networks if the VM will pick up an IP.

    I have found out that the setting to "Bridged: Connected directly to the physical network" in the VM settings, does not always work, as this setting should automatically detect which hosts NIC to use.

    With the above creation you can work around that limitation.
    Only thing to remember is to change the VM's NIC settings if you move you host's connection. Eg, moving from Wired to WiFi or from Home to Work.


    If none of the networks at work will provide you an IP then your company's network is using some authentication protocol on the network which can prohibit IP assignment.
