Preferred Solution: No internet between VMWare and 7 Host

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What anti virus are you running?
It seems like the majority of the newer Versions of the anti-virus/firewalls have an option to allow/block vm's connectiong to the network

I don't need help, I just wanted to post my solution. 
 
I recently setup the latest version of Vmware player on Ubuntu 13.04 and found myself unable to download the tools for it. error try again later or something along those lines. I searched about online for answers but google only presented 1 relevant topic and it didn't have a solution. Anyways I've discovered how to get around this, it's quite obvious really, I feel dumb for taking so long to figure it out. Lauch VMware player as root, then the tools will download successfully. Hopefully this will save someone a world of heart-ache.

Hi,

I have recently installed Redhat Enterprise V.3 as guest on Windows XP host using vmware.

After adding the necessary lines in the 2 ifcfg-eth0 files, the device eth0 is finding the IP correctly at boot time (or by usinf ifup eth0) and I can use folder sharing between the host and the gust. However I still can't connet to the Interent from the guest.

My windows host internet conection is working fine.
I had it working for a short peiod of time on the guest. (I was using VM - settings - customized - eth bridged-default)

Has anyone seen this before?

Goal: To have host machine (win7) to use wired interface (lan1) (10.89.228.171) as default, while vm (winxp) uses wireless interface (wireless1) (192.168.1.2) as default. Each interface is a seperate network and seperate isp.

Using Vmware player 3.1.3

I have set the VM to bridged mode, and bridged that virtual adapter to the wireless interface with vmnetcfg. VM is now able to get out on the internet, ipchicken shows its going out on the wireless isp.

On the host machine, I am also going out on the wireless interface.
I changed metric on wired (lan1) to 1 for gateway AND interface
changed metric on wireless (wireless1) to 100 for interface (no gateway option)

Now, the host machine goes out on the lan1 gateway, great!
Also changed adapter priority, set lan1 above wireless1

Now, when going back to the VM, it is not able to get out on the internet.

If I remove metric for gateway on lan1, I will default back to wireless on the host, Even with the
priority showing lan1 before wireless1..

I guess what im asking windows to do is route all traffic from host through lan1, and route all traffic from vm through wireless1, concurrently.

Hi there

not a big problem but if my HOST has a wifi connection to the internet then a VM (or at least Networking) )doesn't work when enabling BRIDGED networking (NAT works OK but I need Bridged !!))

If I connect the host to my internet via Ethernet or to a "Wifi-->Ethernet bridge" then bridged networking is fine.

I usually use the wifi-ethernet bridge anyway as it's humungously more stable than the basic wifi cards (and the bridge connects to my Internet at fast 5GHZ wifi - avoiding contention problems on 2.4GHZ network).

Not that familiar with VMWare, but from Chapter 5 in the User Guide, if you install the VMWare tools:

Lets you drag and drop files between host operating systems and Windows, Linux,
Solaris, and FreeBSD guest operating systems
Click to expand...

Chapter 8, titled Transferring Files and Text
Between the Host and Guest might also be useful.

You can transfer files directly over the network if you are not using NAT for the network connection type.

I am running Windows XP (SP3) as a virtual machine in VMWare Player 2.5.2. Normally in the "Safely Remove" tray icon I had four components by default, in addition to whatever USB devices I had connected to the virtual machine.

Recently, I chose to "safely remove" a USB device, but my mouse slipped, and instead I "safely removed" the "Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller" and/or the "Inter(R) 82371AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller" (both are missing now, but I think I have written their names correctly).

The components that remain are "VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter" and "Creative AudioPCI (ES1371,ES1373) (WDM)"

Now the virtual OS has no USB capability. I have looked everywhere I can, including Device Manager, and see no sign of the missing Controllers. It seems odd that a virtual component like that could suddenly disappear -- but since it's not a physically-removable drive, I can't just plug it back in.

I have tried doing a Windows Restore to a previous date (before my mistake), but that did not restore the USB Controllers.

How can I restore the USB capability?

A:Windows 10 on Windows 8.1 Host and Vmware - USB problem

Don't you think a VMware forum would be more appropriate? It is a problem with their software.

A hypervisor normally tries to grab your device when it is introduced (from Windows host in your case, OSX in mine) and then offer it to the guest (10 in both cases). USB2 works for me but not USB3. In my case I use virtualbox and it doesn't support USB3. I know this because I asked the developers. This is a problem with the VM software (one end or the other) not Windows. Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 installed on real hardware all recognise USB 2 and 3. And USB 1 works on Windows XP for all I know if such devices still exist.

Hardware acceleration has nothing to do with connecting USB devices BTW. It is for graphics and normally (ime) makes things worse.

I have VMWare 6.5 on my computer, but now it can not connect to the Internet. I've tried it with both Server 2008 and Windows 7. It says "Connected to unidentified network. Access: Local only" At one point, a few weeks ago, it connected with both OS?s. I?m thinking of some network setting is wrong. The host is Windows XP Pro. I?m a certified tech, and I?ve tried everything. Under Virtual Network Editor, I see three items:
VMNet0 (Bridged) Bridged to SIS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet , but no subnet or DHCP listed.
VMNet1 (Host-only) A private network shared with the host 192.168.88.0 Enabled
VMNet9 (NAT) Used to share the host?s IP address 192.168.52.0
I have tried turning on and off Automatic bridging, but that did not work. If I click the network icon in VMWare, you can change it from bridged to NAT to Host-only, and I?ve tried all three. Does that have to match the other setting? Why is VMNet0 blank? I have changed settings in Network and Sharing center too. I connect with cable Internet. I would like to get this VM back on the Internet. Your help is appreciated.

Hi all

To install W8 developer edition (current version) as a VM with vmware workstation you have to download / upgrade to version 8. Version 7.1X and earlier won't work. Vmware player (current version) gives same problem as vmware workstation 7.1x.

When you install choose W7 as the OS (there isn't a W8 option yet not surprisingly) and select I will install the OS later.

Then select the DVD device in the vm serttings as a virtual ISO (you don't need to burn a physical DVD) and boot from the device.

Then it will install more or less as W7.

Ignore any prompt for a product key if it appears. I wasn't asked for one but some people seem to get a request for a product key when attempting to install W8 as a virtual machine.

You can download a free trial version for 30 days from the vmware site. ( it may be that eventually version 7.1x will work or the next upgrade of W8 will work so unless you want to upgrade to version 8 of vmware workstation I'd start with downloading the trial).

Then it installs OK

I don't have enough privileges yet to upload screenshot but it installs fine.

I've also posted a suggestion on how to remove / disable the metro gui for those that want a more "classical" Windows look - you can see the post in the W7 Forum until I can get approval to post in the relevant section on this Forum on customising W8

Hi there
1) can the HOST machine connect to the Internet -- this might be obvious but often the Simplest solutions tend to be the correct answer.

2) Is the Virtual adapter connected AND enabled.

3) Firewalls / router blocking the Virtual XP machine.

Incidentally when I did a W7 Upgrade I couldn't get VM networking to work at all until I'd re-installed vmware.

If you did a W7 Upgrade just re-install vmware (and vmware tools onve the vm is powerd on).

Normally NAT is no problem.

You could also try changing the Networking to "Bridged" although this can give problems if your HOST adapter is a Wireless adapter.

I have several Virtual Machines, 2000, XP and Vista and all work just fine.

Both the mouse and the keyboard (Logitec K270-set) are RF connected and use a single USB-RF dongle.

I have asked on the VMWare site but no responses.

With no keyboard it is almost impossible to try adjustments to the win7 VM. The Device Manager only shows the keyboard as "PS2 Not Started." I tried disabling and enabling, but nothing. With no Internet I can't see if drivers are available to fix this.

I'm running Windows 7 and VMWare Workstation 7, and I cannot access the internet from any virtual machines using bridged connections. I used to be able to, so I'm not quite sure what happened. I did not modify anything within VMWare....

bridged connections are set as they were by default - to use vmnet0. They are capable of pulling an IP and DHCP info from the router, but beyond that they cannot access the internet or do anything else.

On the win7 host machine, under network adapters, I do not see vmnet0 listed - I'm not sure if it is supposed to be or not. It only shows vmnet1 (host-only) and vmnet8 (NAT).

I would rather use bridged connections if possible, but just cannot seem to get it to work.

Yesterday, I couldn't even get NAT to work. It could ping servers, but I couldn't actually use the internet - I guess ICMP was working but not TCP for some reason, although I hadn't modified anything. I updated from VMWare 6.5 to 7.0 and now NAT works, but bridged connections still fail.

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem might be? I've searched the web for solutions but haven't found any that worked (disable vmware adapters, modify registry so that they don't show up under public unidentified networks, etc).

Could it be related to the fact that vmnet0 doesn't show up anywhere on the host machine? I'm not sure if it is supposed to or not - vmnet1 and vmnet8 both show up under network adapters and using ipconfig/all. However, vmnet0 does not show up between ei... Read more

It does not appear you let the program run to completion. Many of your files are missing for the crash reports. Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html and let it run to completion. It may sometimes look like it is not doing anything when it actually is, so go get a cup of coffee or something while it runs to make sure it finishes.

Good news about VMs again.

The latest VMware Workstation 9 brings a new UI and it's designed for Windows 8.

Read about it here:

Also VMware Player 5 is available for download.

Looks like I posted this a bit fast, usually Jimbo beats me at VMware stuff. Sorry for this one.

Hello all,
Recently after update KB4049179 Internet explorer would crash after accessing VM Vsphere web client webpage which uses flash. After Uninstalling said update behavior regarding the website returns to normal. Microsoft Support Twitter account says to post
this in feedback hub, but this is related to my Work Computer and I do not want to link personal Microsoft Account to My work computer. So I thought I would put this here instead. Before I tried uninstalling the update I tried removing Internet Explorer
using Program and Features using the Add and remove features wizard,  and adding back in. But that did not work. It was only after Installing the above update was I able to login to the VMware Vsphere web client webpage and get into the rest of the
portal
