VMWare Pro Workstation Nic Disconnected and No IP Using NAT

By default VMWare Workstation often doesn't work as we would like.

If you create a VM with a default NAT IP it won't work you will find the NIC is disconnected (even though on the VMWare side it says connected including at Power On).

How To Solve It

1.) Create New VMNet for NAT

Click "Edit" -> "Virtual Network Editor"

Click "Add Network"

Select Network To Add "VMNet1" (or the next available name).

 

Click on "NAT" under "Network Information"

It should by default enable DHCP and a default range of 192.168.*.*

and hit OK.

 

2.) Edit your VM and assign it the VMNet you created above.
