VM Ware and a minimac

I connected the wireless modem to a mini- mac.  The mac connected fine. However, once I go into VMWare to go in to windows, no go.  It cannot find the network.  It is DHCP so I tried repairing the connection to get a new address.  That didnt work.  I checked the instructions to make sure it was configured correctly for windows, everything looks fine.  And since I can connect from the mac side I obviously am getting internet.  So to me it appears to be something in the VM software that doesnt pass things through.  There were some network settings in VMware.  I took a look at those  3 different options. The first one was NAT to share the internet connection with the mac.  That was where it was set when I started.  The second one was the Bridged connection.  I switched to that to see if it would help.  No go.  Then finally, there is a third option which restricts to the MAC and of course I dont want that. How does one connect to a mini-mac thru a wireless connection using VM ware?

1. Make sure you have installed VMWare Tools.
2. Make sure you have installed the Windows drivers from the OS X install CD (boot into Windows on VMWare and insert the OS X install CD).
3. Make sure the network settings in VMWare are set to Bridge Mode and the network interface is turned on. (This is done from the VMWare menu in OS X, not from WIndows).
