Forum Thread: Does Anyone Know Why Default Gateway in My Virtual Machine Is Different Than Host?

I am wondering if anyone could tell me why the default gateway for the virtual machine is different than the default gateway for the host. Both are on the same wifi and when I scan the default gateway from either host or VM, the scans are the same so I'm assuming the hardware is the same but I can't figure out why both have different IP's and DG's.

Another random question: If I scan host from the VM, the source IP shows the scan coming directly from the VM. If I scan the VM from the host, the source IP shows (VM Default Gateway).

Linux VM (bridged)
