          Can you please explain how to apply this? Looks like exactly the problem I am experiencing with wifi.

            If I remember correctly:

             

             

            (1) Download Hauke-m's patched vmnet.tar file from here:

             

             

            http://www.hauke-m.de/fileadmin/vmware/vmnet.tar

             

             

            (2) Go to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source and rename the original vmnet.tar to vmnetOLD.tar or something like that.

             

             

            (3) Copy Hauke-m's patched vmnet.tar to /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/.

             

             

            (4) Run vmware-config.pl.

             

             

            That should do it.

                I'm doing something wrong here. I renamed the original vmnet.tar to vmnet.tar.old Then as root I copied the patch file to: /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/.  Next I went to /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl and ran that script as root.  After clicking enter on everything I restarted my virtual machine but the nic on the xp sp2 still thinks it's connecting to the LAN.  I am running Ubuntu Gutsy Kernel 2.6.22 and Workstation 6.0.2.  The only thing that I can think I'm doing wrong is not enabling NAT in the config.pl.  The reason I don't want NAT is I want my virtual machine to get it's ip from DHCP on the Windows network so I can test etc. with it.  Why do you think that my wireless isn't working?   Basically my problem is like the others here.  It works wired but not on the wifi.  Thanks in advance for any help.

                  May well be your problem. Have you run two NICs before? If not, then you need two bridged NICs. By hitting enter and accepting all defaults you will end up with vmnet0 as bridged, vmnet1 as NAT and vmnet8 as host.  You do not want this default config if you want both NICs to connect to a physical network. See also .

                   

                  this is fine. Guest OS always see the NICs as wired connections - no matter whether they are physically wired or wifi.

                   

                  I'm not quite understanding what you have written. I am assuming you don't want NAT but want both NICs to take there IP Address from a DHCP server. This is a fine simple setup. I just wanted both virtual NICs to be on the same subnet as the DHCP server in the router. So when I ran vmware-config.pl I set both vmnet0 and vmnet1 to be bridged and deleted all other vmnet2. In the virtual machine parameters I mapped eth0 to vmnet0 and eth1 to vmnet1. The detailed instructions and lots of variants to create subtle and easy-to-get wrong subnets are documented in the WS User Guide Chapter 13, configuring a virtual network > Setting Up a Second Bridged Network Interface on a Linux Host, works under Linux

                    Now bridging works on my Asus A6M with a Atheros 5006XS Wifi-miniPCI card (I ditched the broadcom 4318), Mandriva 2008.0 AMD64, kernel-laptop-2.6.22.9 with VmwareServer 1.04.

                      Sorry,

                       

                      Looks like I was too quick: it seemed to be working, but after a restart it doesn't anymore.

                       

                      I'll look into it.

                       

                      BTW: Virtualbox-1.5.0-OSE has no problems whatsoever, could look at that source-code..

                        Is the vmnet device you're using bridged to the correct network adapter? I.e., if you're using vmnet0 and your wifi adapter is at eth1, have you instructed VMWare to bridge those two devices? This is usually done when you run vmware-config.pl, although it can be partially adjusted in Settings.

                          My Atheros Madwifi is set at ath0. And I have tried a lot of config incl. the one you mention.

                           

                          I think I :

                          - better use the org vmnet.tar,

                          - set my eth0 to a static address,

                          - set vmnet0-bridge to eth0 (vmware -wants- one bridge) and

                          - try to use NAT or Host-only to/on ath0

                           

                          Bridge on ath0 is a no-go it seems with VMwareServer 1.04

                          Annoying, all of this.

                          I would use Virtualbox (no problems there) but it uses much more cpu-power.

                           

                          It's now 21.22 hr  over here. Finished the setup:

                          - eth0 static setup & start at boot !

                          - vmnet0-bridge set to eth0

                          - vmnet8 NAT+DHCP on ath0

                           

                          It works & good enough for me.

                           

                          Pity I cannot do with just the bridge to ath0, but I can live with it.

                            Please help me...

                              I had a problem with my server. It ran out of memory, because of a gameserver also running on the server.

                               

                               

                              Now everything is working as it should.

                                I have been through this thread over and over but can't get bridged networking going on my laptop with Workstation 6.0.2 or 6.0.1. I have tried kernels 2.6.23-r2, 2.6.23-r3, and 2.21-r4.  I have a Gateway laptop with and ATI chipset.  lspci reports the wireless card as:

                                 

                                05:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI (rev 01)

                                 

                                I use the bcm43xx driver as a kernel module.

                                 

                                Any ideas?  Should my wireless be capable of bridged networking?  From guest (Win XP) I can ping host but nothing beyond.  Other nodes on my local LAN are not reachable.  NAT works just fine.

                                 

                                Thanks,
