I have downloaded and installed :CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-Everything.iso
I installed as VM in VMware Workstation. Apparently it does not connect to internet to download and install packages.
in VM Settings, I tried Host only, Bridged as well as NAT, but still does not help. I configured Resolv.conf file with servername 8.8.8.8 , still does not help.

Any Linux Expert out there to assist me to resolve this issue ?

Thank you

You need to start with Bridged networking for simplicity and to test.

Make sure you have installed VMware Tools in the guest machine.

Then look at the guest machine network settings and make sure the network adapter VMware assigned is working right. I have on old (old) RedHat document for this but no Centos experience.

8.8.8.8 is a DNS server, not a traditional network name. What IP address do you get (it should be one of the external router / server IP addresses because bridged).

Consider changing question title to "No internet in CentOS7x64 in VMware Workstation".

You have internet on the host running VM Workstation, correct?

You need to look at the Network card in VMware and the Network card in Centos and make sure they match.

Did you install VMware Tools as I asked earlier.

What is the exact contents of your resolv.conf file? You shouldn't have to configure it manually but through network configuration in settings.

In case you've added this to your resolv,conf:

servername 8.8.8.8

then change that line to:

nameserver 8.8.8.8

May be below commands will help
ip addr show
ip route show
And cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg*

Please check if you have require proxy to connect to internet, if yes set proxy with
export http_proxy=<http://proxyAddress:Port>

Can you download CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-GnomeLive.iso and run that from a blank VMware machine, do you have internet? If yes, then install that live cd (like you did with the 'everything' iso), do you have internet?
