I'm having a strange problem getting internet connection on any of my 3 VM's I run inside of VMware Workstation. I'm running all three servers as bridged connections and the guest OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 on all three. The host computer is running a clean install of windows 7 ultimate x64.
When you hover over the the network connection in the task menu, it says it has an internet connection but I cannot browse to any pages, external or internal (router admin page). However, I can ping out to say google, nslookup google fine, ping other guest VM's, and my gateway. I cannot ping my host computer.
When I change my network adapter to NAT and change the adapter to get IP and DNS automatically it works fine. It will not work with NAT and the assigned IP I give it. But I need this work in a bridged configuration. I have also verified that I'm bridging to the correct physical network adapter.
I just replaced my old linksys wrt54g with a netgear wndr3700v4. When I put my linksys router back in, everything works great. When I put the 3700 in, can't get internet on the three servers. But here is the strange part, I think.
I also run VMware Fushion on my Mac Mini that runs a Windows 7 VM for my development with a bridged connection and this works perfectly fine with either router I have in!
HELP! Before I lose my mind!
