Automatically restart network on lost connection
Authored by: wallybear on Apr 17, '12 10:19:13AM

It happened to me too losing connection, and found the cause in Parallels Desktop; when I quit Parallels the network is in a "suspended" state (connection is active, but data not flowing). I then do a "ifconfig en0 down; ifconfig en0 up" and the network is restored.

@ wallybear: just change the way Parallels connects the virtual machine: use Shared Network

I'm sorry, I meant Virtualbox, not Parallels.
Anyway I will try the setting you suggested, but that limits the connection possibilities of the emulated machine.
