Hi experts, all of a sudden my windows VMs couldn't connect to the internet. It says it's connected to "unidentified network - no internet access". I'm using VMWare Workstation for the VMs. Windows server 2012 and 2008 R2 are the guest operating systems that can't get to the internet. I've tried enabling LAN on the servers, switching from Bridged mode to NAT, enabling network discovery...

I'm attaching the results to ifconfig. I've got no default gateway and subnet mask looks weird.

I looked at my system restore points, and it looks like 7 days ago windows pushed a "critical update", and it seems to have wiped out all my previous restore points.
