Ubuntu Image on Docker Desktop for Windows - no WiFi access


I am running the official Ubuntu 18 docker image on my Windows 11 laptop, that is connected to WiFi. I am using Docker Desktop v4.15.0.

I am using this command to start the container:

docker run -t --net="host" --privileged 01234

When I run ‘iwconfig’ in Terminal of the running Container, I see a list of elements all ending with ‘no wireless extensions’.

What do I need to do, to gain access to my host wifi from that container?

I already did search in this forum, but found no hint. Any tipp appreciated.


Docker Desktop is a virtual machine and a graphical interface to manage that VM and Docker inside. You will never see the interfaces of the actual host only the interfaces of the virtual machine.
