I'm trying to run Windows Server 2003 on VMWare. I have it installed and everything I just can't get the internet to work. I have it set to NAT in VMWare but other than that I don't know what to do to get it to work.

Set it to bridge mode and it will run.

Internet still not working on VM (Limited or No Connectivity with IP address 169.254.44.213).

Here's my settings:

I set it to Bridged Mode (I did not check Replicate physical network connection state)

Other settings:
In the VM, I didn't change any of the IP settings so it's set to acquire an IP address automatically/whatever the default settings are.

In the host laptop running Windows 7 , I have my Wireless Network Connection, VMware Network Adapter VMnet1, and VMware Network Adapater VMnet8. My Wireless Network Connection is not shared or anything.

You have to manually change the settings under "Edit" / "Virtual Network Editor" / "Automatic Bridging" and add the wireless adapter.

I added my Wireless adapter under Automatic Bridging in the Virtual Network editor but the window that it's added to is the "Excluded Adapters" window. I don't know why I would want to exclude my network adapter from there...

Ok, so forget my posting and delete the added network adapter from excluding list.
Instead in "Virtual Network Manager" click the Host Virtual Network Mapping and select your wireless adapter the VMnet0 and give it a shot.

Ok, what happens, if you manually configure the ip address?
Can you then ping any device like host pc, router a.s.o.?

At the host pc, open a command prompt.
Type in:
ipconfig /all
Output shows the ip address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server, it uses.

E.g.
If you get an output like:
ip address: 192.168.1.10
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1
dns server: 192.168.1.1

You have to configure the ip settings in the virtual machine like this:
ip address: 192.168.1.11
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1
dns server: 192.168.1.1

You're running a windows 2003 server, so you should be aware on how to configure network settings in windows 2003.

If not, post back.

I'm trying with NAT because I don't think my school network will allow me to connect physically (bridged). With NAT I can ping all websites but I can't browse the internet...

Does a tracert to e.g. microsoft.com will work?
In CMD type:
tracert microsoft.com

Then try this:
nslookup -q=any microsoft.com

Will it work?
