I have a win7 64bit VM running on Vmware 7 workstation on a host (win7 64bit). The vm was able to see the network just fine, but now it cannot. I was running 6.5.3 and installed vmware 7 then rebuilt the vm. still nothing. The vm is set for bridge on vnet0.

Any thoughts?

Try switching it to NAT and see if it then works, then back to Bridge.

This may be overkill for your setup, but you might find some interesting pointers here.

The VMWare system has never been too nice with letting your host system talk directly to the clients ... Good luck! Hope this helps!
