WSL 2 Internet crash

victor kubiak 1 Reputation point


Here's my problem.
I have a WSL2 installed with Unbuntu.
Everytime I try reaching the internet by updating my ubuntu or installing packages my internet crashes on both the host and VM.
My internet connection is USB tethering with my phone cause I don't have WiFi nor ethernet at home.
When this crash occurs I have unplug and replug USB to re-enable USB tethering and it works again as long as I don't try to reach internet with my WSL.

Do you have any leads on solution ?

    I have similar/same problem too.

    When I use USB tethering on host OS(Windows 11), all programs use Hyper-V virtual switch,
    such as WSL2 including docker desktop, Sandbox and Hyper-V guest OSs
    break down my tethering connection on both host and guest.

    I guess Hyper-V virtual switch does not consider tethering case.
