    Hey Guys,
    Wanted to ask this in vmware forum but my software version is a crack version. Anyway, For the past week or so my open virtual machine is getting disconnecting for no reason at all. I had never done any setting changes that I know of but on one virtual machine I have Bridge and the other custom. Been switch to every other to see if it works but nothing. I tried Bridge on all my open virtual machine and it looks like on one virtual machine can be connected to bridge. Sounds weird yeah but can anyone who is using vmware in pc recommend a network connection settings? I've include a screenshot.

    You can try using NAT for internet to see whether the guest supports the network adapter at all. Maybe some software on the guest is blocking it, so I would check that first.
    If that works, there must be something wrong with your vm host/router. Bridging usually works if NAT works and you say that it worked before so I guess there is something wrong with your vm.

    Edit: If you just need to access the internet from a VM, NAT is the most easy way

    kind regards,
    SICK

    I used to work for VMware Presales team. I can tell you that the best place to ask this question is on the forums. There are people that answer questions like these all the time. It doesn't matter if your software is cracked or not. They have no way of checking that.
