Internet Connectivity with vSwitch

  • 1.  Internet Connectivity with vSwitch

    My ISP (timewarner) provides a modem.  If I directly connect my laptop to the modem, I can successfully get a DHCP assigned public IPv4/6 address. 

    However, if I connect the cable coming out of the modem into a physical nic (vmnic16) that's running vSphere 6.5 with a vSwitch configured for a Port Group *without* VLAN (ie: set to 0), I am not able pull a DHCP assigned public IP.  I am attaching a screenshot of the vSwitch configuration.

    Any ideas as to why the VM attached to this switch is not able to pull an IP address?

    Thanks!
