My OS is Windows 7. I installed VMware version 7. I am running Mac OS X virtually. But I am not able to access to internet. I am using wireless internet in my host box (Windows 7).
I also tried the bridged mode, but it's also not working.
Try switching to bridged networking mode. When just trying to let a VM access the Internet, I've found it's easiest to use bridged networking so it appears as another networked computer.
I had this problem and, after making sure all of the settings were correct and still not being able to connect, I just restarted my virtual machine and it was fixed. Simple, but worth a try!
I am running Vista 64Bit with VMWare workstation(the latest release of everything).
If by chance I lose my DSL connection, no matter what I do I can't seem to get any of the VM's to connect back to the internet, without shutting everything down and rebooting the whole physical machine - (the desktop, reconnects just fine). I often have 3-4 VM's running (NT, NT Server, XP) with multiple apps open in each, plus many apps running in my regular desktop (i.e. not within a VM). Needless to say, its is timeconsuming and a pain-in-the-neck to shut everything down and then reboot and reset all my apps....
Even shutting down all the VM's and shutting down VMWare doesn't solve the problem, only a full-system reboot.
Any suggestions? This seems to be a new problem, perhaps since I upgraded to the latest VMWare workstation release - I am not 100% positive, but I 95% sure that up until a 6 weeks ago or so, if the DSL connection was lost, everything would reconnect when it came back on...
Thanks for any suggestions.
Edit: Additional puzzling information is that I can still access other machines on the network from this machine, i.e. map a network drive back to the host and read/write files - just won't see or talk to the internet from any VM.
I have had this a few times, I go to removable devices and just disconnect the network card, wait for the VM to detect the "cable" is out, then reconnect.
This always does the job for me.
I use a small script that disable and re-enable the network card. Script is as follows:
devcon.exe disable *DEV_2000*
devcon.exe enable *DEV_2000*
The utility devcon.exe can be downloaded from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311272, and the network card id can be found in the Device Manager, properties for the network card in the tab called details. It will look like this:
Then its just a matter of clicking an icon to run the script, and the network card should work right after that.
Try disabling the virtual NIC and re-enabling it while the VM is still running. If you aren't using static addressing, release and renew your IP address.
