net stop vmnetbridge
net start vmnetbridge
Sometimes that helps

Everything work well on NAT network but bridge is broken , cause of the last update of win 10 ?
Vmnet0 dont get any connection ither
when i ping on google dns that's what i'm getting
If any one is having the same probleme please help me to solve this probleme , i have been looking for the solution during the two last days it's very ennoying .
Hi, this is something I lost my respect to VMWare and Microsoft to.
But I found the resolution.
It works when you have installed Workstation, not Player, but I undrestand you have Workstation.
So: if you need bridged connection, simply: remove all others: VMnet1 and VMnet8. Leave VMnet0 and... voila!
Now I am looking for resolution in Player, not Workstation, but I am enormously less stressed

I had a similar problem and found the solution. I had created a VM with vmware player trial on windows 10 and it worked. I purchased workstation pro and installed. When I ran the same VM with workstation, there was no network connectivity at all. I had network access if I changed to NAT, but not as bridged. However, I need bridge.
Thanks to GreckiSASI was able to find the solution.
-- Be sure your vm is stopped.
--Run the VMWare Virtual Network Editor
(click start and search for Virtual Network Editor)
-- Run it as administrator (or click the button at the bottom of the screen that says, "change settings." VMNet0 will dislpay when running as administrator. Otherwise, it will not be visible)
-- Highlight VMNet0 and click on "Automatic Settings"
-- You will see a list of adapters. De-select all but the physical network card. (When I set up up with player, I had selected only the 1. After install of workstation, all of the items were checked.)
-- Click "OK"
-- Click "Ok"
-- Start the VM and test.

Some of my VMs were created 10 years ago and I have been upgrading VMware workstation version.
In version 12, restore default fixed the bridge issue.
in version 14, following GreckiSASI's instruction fixed the issue.
These things are difficult to diagnose without actually being in front of the machines as important things can be missed. From what you have said the problem is with only the one machine not being reachable. Now if I understand correctly if you use NAT mode everything works but with bridged mode it doesn't. What jumps out at me is 'Firewall rules' as with NAT mode you are using existing addresses but with bridged you'll get new IP addresses via DHCP. So Maybe you need a Firewall rule on the 'host' to allow your new IP addresses through it.
not for me. i'm on 1809 and just installed and removed the march cumulative update. now my lenovo with an attached usb keyboard drops keys or repeats keys. and nothing i do gets bridged networking back on for my fedora 29 guest. before this, everything was working. sigh.
they fixed the stuttering problem but i still don't have networking ("network is unreachable"). this is true for both a fedora 29 guest and a centos 7 guest. so the problem isn't OS-specific. i've done all the typical stuff (reset the virtual interfaces) but it had no effect. i haven't tried to reinstall workstation yet. in addition to the networking problem, booting fedora 29 doesn't work smoothly. the login screen doesn't show up unless i pause & restart the VM. centos 7 works without a problem.
I had the same problem. Bridge mode didn't work on my Win10 host. None of the solutions listed here or mentioned elsewhere worked. Here is how I got it working. The Ethernet network adapter on my host computer was configured for a static IP. When I changed it to DHCP bridge mode worked. The strange thing is that my host was connected to the LAN with WIfi which was using DHCP. The Ethernet was disconnected but using static IP. I had even set Workstation bridge mode to use the wireless adapter but the unconnected Ethernet with it's static IP was keeping bridge mode from working. I hope this solution helps some others.
Tried a lot of things, but eventually i resolved this problem by removing checkpoint vpn client from my Host. Then i restarted host and it started working.
Now i can ping my VM from host and vice versa with bridged network.
Maybe it can help somenone else.
I found the following worked in Windows 10 and Vmware Workstation Version 10. I had to add vmware.exe to the allowed applications in the FW. I then reset the network back and then NAT addressing worked on a CentOS Version 7 VM.
