No Internet connection after upgrading Fusion to 11.5.3

This hasn't happened in a long time, but....

After upgrading to Fusion 11.5.3 running on macOS 10.15.4, my Windows 10 (version 1909) VM won't connect to the Internet.

I've repaired VMTools, uninstalled it and re-installed it, to no avail.

Made no other changes to the VM or to Fusion's settings.

Any ideas?

Thanks tons.

Try removing the Network Adaptor in the Virtual Machine settings and add a new network adapter and check the status.

I'll give that a try.

Also check NAT vs bridged.

Restarting vmnet service may help you,

$cd /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library

$ sudo ./vmnet-cli --stop

$ sudo ./vmnet-cli --start

I have exactly the same problem. 

Upgraded to VMware Fusion from 11.5.1 to 11.5.3.  Running Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6.  Network worked flawlessly in the previous version.

Default network settings:  bridged / auto detect.

After VMware Fusion 11.5.3 starts, network does work for a few minutes and then stops.

Hi cfm56d7b ,

Could you check the services on macOS? Please check the output of command 'ps -ef|grep vmnet' . Are you running special service in your bridged VM?
