Creation of virtual switch (external network) never stops Applying changes


  • I have tried creating a Virtual Switch as external, and binding it to my wireless connection. After confirmation the Applying changes is stuck and never succeeds.

    After hours I can only decide to shutdown (and even restarting hangs), so forcibly turning off was the only solution. Now, after rebooting, the wireless adapter showed 'Bridged', but without a network bridge. I decided to remove this configuration as the adapter never got an IP address. Eventually, this also did not succeed...

    A Network reset was all that was left... one machine's wireless works now, the other still receives no address. This has happened on two machines now, a Yoga S3 and a T460P.

    What could be the cause of this?
