Why do you need to bridge the connections in Windows? VMWare supports bridged connections itself, you just change the network connection in the virtual machine setup from NAT to Bridged.

Do what shf301 advised and make sure your NIC inside the virtual machine gets an IP address either dynamically or set it manually. Then you should have access to the Internet
