Ok at the moment I use NAT and i can connect to the internet, but I always have to change the router. Xen starts a new vifx.0 interface which is my domUs router. The IP changes every time. How to fix that???
Don't use "ip=", use "mac=" and either use DHCP or set the IP address in the operating systemm itself. You can also hardcode the vif instance, and I recommend this for network monitoring reasons.
It should be in your documentation. You use  something like:

   vif=[ 'vifname=xen.(whatever), mac=00:16:3E:01:(whichever), ' ]
