Hi all,

I downloaded VMWARE to my computer, and installed Ubuntu OS. However, I don't have Internet connection on Ubuntu, while I have excellent connection on the primary OS of my computer.
Maybe there is a problem with the Network Settings of Ubuntu. Do you have any idea how to solve it?

Thanks,

Likely a network configuration error on VMWare. I'm not sure what they call it on VMWare but in VirtualBox they call it "Bridged" in the network setting.

VmWare supports both bridged and NAT'ed networking. And they both should have access to the internet that is available to the host.

VmWare also supports "host only", which only allows access to the host -- but not the network that is available on that host. Make sure you are not using this option.

Thanks.
I chose the option "bridged" and now I have internet connection.
