This should probably be its own thread, but just to add some
The no networking issue generally occurs when people boot the USB on
their computer (not in a VM) and they are expecting to use WiFi and
either the WiFi drivers aren't available or they don't realize they need
to select and authenticate to a network.
Note: Wired networks could theoretically have the similar issued but in
practice tend to just work (or just don't get used as often).
