If you have an antivirus/firewall on Win7 try to disable it and restart the VM.
I add the problem with NOD32
Make sure you have installed the VMWare tools inside Ubuntu.

Hi Bxoz,

Isn't it possible to connect to the internet while antivirus is running, I have Mc Afee anti virus , is there any way to make an exception for ubuntu running on top
of the VMWare ?

Thanks,

Bechir

Hi!

Maybe you could try VirtualBox instead of VMware?

Regards, Tobias
Is your vm guest able to ping the gateway? Is it using dhcp? What is the network config of the vm guest and the host?

You you need to provide more information.
