WIndows 8 on VMware Fusion 4 (Mac OSX 10.6.4) RRS feed

  • Question

  • The network card stays "Disconnected" (network cable unplugged).

    Doesn't matter if I use the default Intel driver or try the vmxnet3 driver that won't start and gives an error.

    Does someone has an idea what to try?

  • Hi bartjen,

    If you open the edit options for the Network adapter of the Virtual Machine does the NIC show as a “Bridged” connection? If so can you switch to HostOnly and does that correct the issue or show the status as connected now?

    Please also take a look at the following Article:
