I have a Win7 guest on VmWare Workstation 6.5 running on another Win7 that is on a notebook with wireless network. Seeking this same problem on web pages I do not found and answer for my problem not even a problem like mine.
I tried Bridge or Nat, changing windows network adapter confs on the two OS, and change settings on Virtual Network Editor too. But none worked.
My notebook ip is something like 192.168.1.170, gateway is 192.168.1.1. Even setup virtual adapters to this subnet and this configs on DHCP not worked. My great doubt is what type of connection to use on VM (Bridge, NAT, etc...) and what adapter to change (VMNet0, VMnet8) or create a new one.
I don't know how to combine those options to make it works.
