Please try the solution posted by Geoffrey84 in this thread and see if it helps:
Geoffrey84's solution doesn't work at all for me.
VMware Fusion 12 Release Notes mentions several workarounds, but it isn't clear to me how to go about doing this.
One of my VMs have 2 networking adapters:
I also tried the Geoffrey solution and it did not work for me... NAT is fine, but bridged is broken.
I've been using versions of fusion for years with same vm that is updated to latest Windows 10.
When in bridged mode I get a unique IP from my router, but when i try to access websites, I only see partial/no content. If I switch back to NAT all is well, but I have a server I run in windows so I need bridged to work. I tried Oookla speed test and on download, it stops short with a low number. upload speeds are fine. In NAT mode get great numbers down and up.
Bridged seemed to work fine with Fusion 12 before Big Sur.
Thanks for any ideas!
Same issue here although with a Linux VM and connected to a VLAN interface. Working fine with Catalina, but broken with Big Sur on Fusion 12.0 and 12.1.
I can ping the local IP on the VLAN interface configured on the mac itself, but not get further.
Mac on VLAN666: 172.16.3.254/24
Other device behind ethernet bridge on VLAN666: 172.16.3.1/24
VM to Mac: works
VM to Other Device: doesn't work
Could provide pcaps if it helps.
Don't know if this is related, but my bridge-mode broke in v11.
I eventually traced it to my Amplifi (Ubiquiti) router not giving out IP and blocking virtual mac addresses over wifi. Ubiquiti support hasn't responded yet.
Works on ethernet, works on other routers, works in NAT mode.

I've reported on an Aplifi forum page (https://community.amplifi.com/topic/3963/update-on-this-issue-no-networking-for-virtual-machines-in-...).
With a little investigation, I've found that the nanoHD AP doesn't transfer arp reply frames from a network gw when I try to reach it from any VM connected via bridge mode to WiFi.
There is a traffic dump from en0 - WiFi interface on my host:
Also the traffic dump from my router gw interface:
As you can see, arp replies go out of gw but don't reach the host WiFi interface.
