    In windows check that you see four individual network adapters. If you do, then go here:

    Click on "chapter 7", then "changing the network configuration", then "configuring bridged networking options on a windows host"

    If you don't have four individual network adapters in windows, you need to re-configure the network before you can do the VMWare bridged networking.
