    Bridged networking won't start after sleep

    enraycious Novice
      • If the host PC has been to sleep, then the network bridge cannot start.

      • The fix seems to stop or suspend all VMs, then choose "Default" on the Virtual Network Editor.



      In principle, I'm reinstalling the bridging components every time I run VMware Workstation, if my host PC has been to sleep since last time I used VMware.



      Is there a more efficient way to rebind the bridging? A serviceI an restart? A device I can re-enable? A netsh command to re-initialize the bridge?



      Why do you suppose it's failing like this? Workstation 7 on WIndows 7 x64 (build 7100, not RTM).
