MacOS – Computer should be restarted to connect internet (Mountain Lion on VMware 8)


I have Mountain Lion 10.8 on VMware 8.
I am using auto-bridging (vmnet0) for internet service.
The internet works find until I pause or turn off the virtual machine. When I resume or restart it, the internet connection does not work. I pinged localhost, but there was no response.

When I restart the host (Windows 7), then the internet connection inside guest OS (Mac) works fine again.

My laptop is connected to a switch, which is further connected to a router via ethernet. How do I solve this problem?

Mac OS X is only supported as guest OS when the host OS is OS X - and then it only OS X Server that VMware allow the install of.

Therefore I think you are missing some necessary driveres.
