  3. Attach an interface to the guest by clicking on Add Harware, choosing Network as the hardware type, selecting a device model and clicking Forward then Finish
  4. Check that the guest saw the device e.g. NetworkManager in the guest should see the device and bring it up
  5. Check that networking works correctly using e.g. a browser or ping
  6. Detach the interface by selecting the NIC and clicking on the Remove button
  7. Check the guest can no longer see the interface
  8. Repeat with different values for model - e.g. virtio, e1000, rtl8139, ...

  2. The attached interface should appear in the guest
