I have a Windows 7 laptop which is connected to the Internet via WIFI.

I have a Windows XP virtual machine running in VMware Player and would like it to connect to the Internet as well.

How can I get my Windows XP VMWare machine to either share the connection with the Win7 host or make a new connection?

You need to set the network to NAT in order to connect it to the internet.

Open up the VMWare Network Adapter Settings.
