Question ubuntu 12.04 - kvm network interface empty

I have follwee this howto in order to set up a couple of KVM's.
For the most part everything went smoothly, except the virtual network interface, whch has neither an IP (public) nor a GW (public as well), although both have been assigned while building the VM.

Here's what ifconfog says:

and route -n says

The VM is running:

but iface-list returns an error

virsh # iface-list
error: Failed to list active interfaces
error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virConnectNumOfInterfaces
Help is much welcome.


[EDIT]

Just in case, /etc/network/interfaces looks as follows (the public IP's are changed for obvious reasons)
Quote:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface

iface eth0 inet manual


auto br0
iface br0 inet static

bridge_hello 2
bridge_maxage 12
bridge_stp off
