I don't know what I did or what changed but about an hour ago I lost internet connection on my VMware Player with latest Debian installed. I already restarted Host and Client, reinstalled VMware-Tools, removed and added a virtual network adapter with NAT enabled, but all that didn't change anything.
I took a look at
VMware Network Adapter VMnet1 and
VMware Network Adapter VMnet8 and they both tell me that they don't have network access:
Could this possibly be the root of the problem?
Edit: This is the Virtual Network Editor:
Edit 2: I downloaded the latest 14.1.1-version of VMware Player and upgraded to this latest version - now network is working again.
