BTW!! I am able to connect to the internet via GNS3 Router. My question is about the IP Address that's assigned to the router!
Here it goes:
So this is my set up in GNS3:
Router 1 ---> Cloud (using my local MS loopback interface)
I had been struggling to get my router to the internet for a while. I'd run ipconfig and found that my wireless was using an IP of 10.x.x.x with a gateway of .1. So obviously, I was trying to manually assign my MS loopback a random address of like 10.x.x.25 (/24, so still within the same subnet). But it never worked!!
Finally gave up, and then a new idea hit me. I set my MS loopback as "receive IP via DHCP", and also my GNS3 router interface that's facing the loopback cloud as "receive IP via DHCP".
They both received an IP Address of 192.168.x.x!!! and it connected to the internet as well. Duh.. no wonder my manual 10.x.x.x didn't work.
I did an ipconfig/all.... I just could not see a 192.168.x.x subnet in there at all.. no trace of it, just 10.x.x.x was present. Isn't 10.x.x.x already NAT'ed?
Where DID this 192.168.x.x IP come from? Please clarify!
