Welcome to the forums!
Can you post screenshots, please?
When you choose "bridged" fo rthe vNIC, does the network work? It should connect you to VMnet0 in that case.
And yes, the nwtworks should be visible there.
Have you tried "Restore Defaults" already, if that bring back the networks?
Yes the network works in bridge mode for vmnet0, but I can't choose vmnet1 for nic 2 which is my iscsi storage nic.
Did restore defaults twice, it seemed to refresh the networks, but problem persists. No Custom network in dropdown.
Removed all NICs from VM and started fresh, still no network in dropdown.

Thanks for posting and sorry to hear you have a problem with WS TP2.
I'll reroute your concern to the right person, but to speed-up investigation, could you please give us more info:
1. Did you upgraded VMware Workstation (from WS version? is works OK before?) or you Install on clean Host?
2. You log as User with FULL Administrative privileges?
-- and please attach UI Log (Help->About->UI log file).
BTW: I try to replicate this in my environment - Win7 Ultimate SP1 - and I did not see this happened.
1. Did you upgraded VMware Workstation (from WS version? is works OK before?) Fresh Install of Beta 754035 , never had any other versions of Vmware Workstation installed. Today I even tried to uninstall and re-instal, completed Multiple reboots required during process, with same results.
or you Install on clean Host? This was a fresh install if Windows 7 ultimate 64bit SP1, nothing else installed except MS Security Essentials.
For Microsoft security essentials I excluded the vmware folder
