While I've been able to get a 2.4 vmware player sandbox to work on my desktop under a NAT adapter without issue, I cannot get a second vmware player to work in a wireless environment on a laptop. The choices I've made so far for the network settings on the guest vm have been NAT or NAT Networking. Both of these choices return the same results-- an error on startup which reads: device eth0 does not seem to be present, then: Connectivity Issues Detected! when the startup process has completed. No IP address is displayed.
Well, the vm isn't wrong since I don't have any ports/addresses set up--but I haven't a clue how to bridge the dynamic wireless environment to ip addresses/ports. I am not a network geek, so this has turned out to be a frustrating stumbling block. Please advise.
