- [Not sure if this works on Win 7, but give it a shot]: Go to start -> run -> types ‘services.msc’ (without quotes) and press enter
- Right-click on the following services and press ‘restart’: VMWare Agent Service, VMWare Authorization Service, VMWare DHCP Service, VMWare NAT Serv
Yes! The trick works on Win-7 as well. but only “DHCP Service” and the “Nat Service” is required to be started for NAT and Host-Only Network Type. But yes it’s good to restart all of them for the VMware to get refreshed.
I would also suggest using “Bridged Connection” to make your Guest Machine fully available to/from the external network (If not considering to keep it private). In either case, as you are facing trouble with the network internet access, you need to fix that before. So check with the workaround of restarting the services if it helps. otherwise…
Either of the type NAT or Bridged, you select, it should work with the default settings if you haven’t messed them up. if above workaround doesn’t help then try to restore defaults in
VMware > Edit > Virtual Network Editor
Note: if you try to use Bridged Connection, make sure in the Virtual Network Editor that the [VMnet0] is set to “Automatic” or to the “Network Adapter”(which is currently having internet access, which probably should be the wireless adapter in your case).
