I am having an issue using VMware Player 3.0 where the host os will keep its internet connection but the virtual server will loose it's internet access until i shut the virtualization down and reboot the host. This happens quite frequently. The host is xpsp3 unfortunately, it will upgraded soon but I was given a budget to make something work. The VM is server 2008. The Network settings in vmware player are bridged and the use physical connection state box is checked but it will drop either way.
