I have a strange issue on my VM's hosted on my laptop in VMware Workstation 9.
Using bridged networking, I get an address from the local DHCP server, but all further local network communication fails.
I cannot ping my default gateway nor any hosts in the routed VLANs (including the DHCP server).
However I can communicate with hosts on the far side of the WAN.
I get the same result when I use NAT.
