Network access fails on ChromeOS 74?
Wilhelm Fitzpatrick

I have Adobe Digital Editions 1.7.2 installed under CrossOver on my Pixel Slate, and suddenly it's no longer able to access the network when it runs.

The main thing that has changed since last time I ran it is that I updated to Chrome OS 74. Have others encountered this symptom of CrossOver apps being unable to access the network after updating?

I'm trying to figure out if it is likely that the update was the cause, or if I should be looking elsewhere to try to resolve this issue.

Wilhelm,

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of help for you here, except to say that I have not had any network issues with Chrome OS upgrades and networking.  I'm on Chrome OS 75 and it is working fine and has been since I first started with it, with versions in the 60s.  But I don't know that I could confidently tell you to look elsewhere either, because our hardware is quite different (I'm on an Acer R11, and the beta channel).  You may want to try switching to the Beta channel and update to a newer Chrome version there and see if that helps.  But if you do so, remember that switching back to the Stable channel will make your system want to do a PowerWash, which will wipe your system.
