VMWare, Bridged NIC, can ping and resolve, cannot browse

I have VMWare running on a PC.  There is one virtial machine on it (server 08 R2).  That virtual NIC is Bridged.  My host IP is 192.168.1.x and my virtual machine is 192.168.1.x as well.  Have run ipconfig /all on both and DNS and gateways are the same.  On the virtual, I can ping WAN IP addresses, and I can resolve DNS names in nslookup.

I cannot browse.  

ideas?

Thanks

Cliff

sounds like a browser issue.  check security settings?

 is there a proxy configured in the browser?  Tools | Internet Options | Connections | LAN settings.

you can also run proxycfg -u from a command prompt to see if it's using something.

oops, I guess proxycfg isn't supported in 2008/7

it's a default server 08 install. and, when i swith back to NAT, it browses fine.  it's only when I'm in Bridged.

added info...

when NAT is on, I can browse.

when Bridged is on, no browsing but can ping and resolve.  BUT, ALSO, when bridged, I trace rt to anyplace and I make it past my gateway, but then hops 3 and 4 time out, then it picks back up.

Firewall on somewhere?

both firewalls off on host and guest.  but think about it.  i can browse when in NAT, not when bridged.  but in bridged i can ping and resolve IP addresses.

ok, no joy.  BUT, i did create the exact same environment here at work and it worked first time no matter if I go bridged or NAT.  I'm going to rip it out and reinstall tonight and see.

It was my AVG firewall.  when off on the host, all is well in bridged mode.
