Have you installed VMware Tools?

If you have installed VMware Tools (and only if), change the network drive to VMXNET3, of if you have not got tools installed and are using this virtual NIC, make sure you have VMware Tools installed.

You can install VMware Tools from the menu options in the virtual machine.
