Its likely that the VMNic is not connected at startup.
Like Paulsolov said, check the settings of the VM and check the checkbox "connect at startup"

Good Luck,

Another alternative is to try updating the NIC Drivers to the latest versions.

But you just mentioned that you use VMnet0 , that is alway the bridging nic.
