I did try another VM (CentOS 6) via virt-manager with the same results.
 However I setup a test server at home, and am able to get both bridging and
NAT to work so this may be an issue with the network on my server.  It's a
University network and their switches tend to play havoc with virtual
servers even though I've been assured enough MAC addresses have been allowed
on my port.

How does one troubleshoot or provide debug information on a correctly or
incorrectly functioning network bridge?  As I contact my University's
helpdesk I'd like to be able to point out the fault is not with my KVM
