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.

Have you checked for port availability within VMware VSwitch? – Pulse Jun 20 '10 at 4:56
where to check that ? – bragboy Jun 20 '10 at 4:59

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.

Hi.. I tried that too. Its not working. – bragboy Jun 20 '10 at 4:49
Perhaps try giving the VM a static IP address, at least for testing? – Stephen Jennings Jun 20 '10 at 4:51
How to and where to give it ? – bragboy Jun 20 '10 at 4:52
Set it to bridged networking. Check your IP address on Windows by opening command prompt and typing "ipconfig", then in Mac OS X change "Configure" to "Manually", and type in another IP address with the same first three numbers (if your Windows machine is, try using for Mac OS X). Use the same subnet mask and gateway address that the Windows machine has. – Stephen Jennings Jun 20 '10 at 21:56

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!
