First, try Bridged Networking to see if that works for you.

Second, if staying with NAT, make sure the Firewalls allow the NAT subnet.

Third, go to Start, All, VMware, Network Editor, right click, select Run as Administrator. In the Network Editor, click on NAT and select the options to Reset to Defaults.  Restart the guest machine and test.

What is your host machine?

NAT should work fine to get to the internet. Make sure you have installed the VMware Tools inside the VM, and make sure you have selected the proper Virtual NIC.

It is always a good idea to install Tools, but you may need Internet to update them in the guest machine.

Thanks for the update. You can test the Tools Update and then test NAT at your leisure.
