Ubuntu 15.10 (updated this morning 2016 MAR 30 ~1100 PT)

PlayOnLinux 4.2.10

Memory: 15.5 GiB
Processor: Intel Core i7-47705 CPU @ 3.10GHz x 8
Graphics: Intel Haswell Desktop
OS type: 64-bit
Disk: 229.2 GB
Network: 1000 Mb/s
(Card is built in to motherboard)

Debugger info:
[03/30/16 12:21:45] - Running wine- Scrivener.exe (Working directory : /home/nexist/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Scrivener/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Scrivener)

Note: There were no error messages in the Log file

Whenever I try to update my Scrivener app, I get a dialog saying "No Active Network Connection Found". When I noticed this, I checked my iDailyDiary app and found that its automatic update was not working either (there is no way to manually trigger the update check).

How can I tell PlayOnLinux to use my Linux network connections? Preferably without needing to uninstall and reinstall my applications.

Somehow the repository for WINE was dropped, so I was still on version 1.6.x. I added the Wine Repository and upgraded to 1.8. It appears to be working now.
