I got the VMware player running just fine under Ubuntu 7.10, but only if I configure it to use bridged networking on eth0. I also have a wireless network card installed as wlan0 which is actually my default network card. When i configure either only vmnet0 bridged to wlan0 the network in my guest OS doesnt work. If I plug in the cable to eth0 and configure via vmware-config.pl bridged network on eth0 everything works great...
Any help on how to make it work with wlan0 would be more then welcome.
I tried your solution and during installation all went fine, but when I start VMware Player I get this error:
Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 168.0, got 167.0.
You have an incorrect version of the 'vmmon' kernel module.
Try reinstalling VMware Player.
My Linux box is: Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-18-generic) running VMware Player 2.04 i386.
What can I do? Thanks...
Try the server version, its also free. But it should work with player too. Try using a diffrent any-any update, i found a few, but only this one worked for me... And it works on kernels from 2.6.24-16 to 2.6.24-19 (that's what i've tested).Each time a kernel is updated I need to rerun the vmware-config.pl, so it builds for the new kernel... then everything works again.
I am having a similar issue with bridging my wireless lan card. The situation is a little different though as I am running windows xp within vmware ace player. I can get it bridged fine with the lan card but if I setup a separate bridge for the wireless lan card it simply cannot get an IP address. The host system shows as connected wirelessly with a valid IP. I read on a post someone suggested that the wireless ap may not want to assign multiple IP's to the same wireless client. I am not sure if this is the cause. It would be nice to get some confirmation on this.
Did you have a solution for your problem ?
My problem seems the same.
The VM has an XP Os, and the Wireless network adapter with automatic bridged on vmNet0 cannot connect to the network.
With an other VM using a Linux Red hat Os, a MAC address seems attributed, but not an IP Address.
Sorry to reignite this post. I have some guest OS on a linux rhel4 hosts, my problem is i have configured the guest OS to use bridge networking with different host having different and valid IP addresses. The problem is, only one of the guest OS is active at a time on the network, is it possible to make all this host accessible at a time?
