You need to use the Virtual Network Editor, available from the Start Menu, VMware group, and create a network for use with VMs, bound to the Wireless network card.

BUT, reports and users have reported that wireless network cards may not function as described with VMware Workstation.

I set my guests up with NAT networking on my laptop. The laptop uses a wireless connection and any guest gets good internet / network access. This works better for me than try to set up a separate connection in the guest machine.

I set with NAT, but I still cannot access internet or ping my windows host. ifconfig does not show any IP address that my Linux machine has any

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

Make sure your host firewall allow the NAT range. I have to do that on my laptop where all my guest machines work through NAT.

Also did you install the VMware Tools in the Guest Machine. You need to do this.

Properly set up, NAT should work with a Host Machine connected via wireless. I have been doing that for a number of years.
