How to access a VM from other PC on a network

Hi I have a Win7 PC on which is running VMware. I have a VM running Ubuntu, IP address I can ping the IP and net gateways fine from the Win7 host but other machines cannot ping the 192.168.22 network.
I have tried static routes pointing the network client PCs  to the Win 7 PC ( however they still cannot access it.
What do I have to do on the Win7 system to route network clients to the VMware adapter?

Are you running VMware Workstation or Player? I believe your VM is using NAT mode and should be set to Bridged mode so it can go out and get its own IP on your network.

you have to make changes into the gateway system.
As you said Ubantu machine can ping to the gateway and access the internet, looks they are good. 192.168.22.x network is separate from your regular network i.e. 192.168.1.x.

So from the Ubantu you can access (via gateway) and from other machines to internet (via same gateway).

Lets make changes to the gateway so that it can communicate these two network 22.x and 1.x.
