Setting up Intel Pro/1000PT Quad

I have installed a used Intel Pro/1000PT Quad in my workstation so VM's can have a dedicated NIC.  Is there any HOWTO's on how to make sure the host does NOT use the port and to correctly configure the Virtual Network Editor?  At the moment there are three networks: VMnet0 (bridged), VMnet1 (Host-only), VMnet8 (NAT).  I tried:

  1. changing VMnet0 (Bridged) to use the Intel Pro/1000PT Ethernet 4
  2. Assign VMnet0 to the VM
  3. starts up VM machine and no network

When going into Network Connections, Intel Pro/1000PT Ethernet 4 does have an IP on the network.

What am I doing wrong, how do I configure this correctly?

If you don't want the host to use the network card, untick the network protocols in the adapter's properties (make sure you leave VMWare Bridge Protocol ticked).
