VMWare Client NAT Internet Access not working – Error: Media disconnected

Annoying problem with WMWare. If you happen to use NAT to share your host internet connection to your client image you may encounter this problem. If you open on a windows machine command prompt and type ipconfig you might get errors stating something in the line of “Media disconnected”. To fix this problem you can retore your VMWare NAT settings. Go to your VMWare tool bar => Edit => Virtual Network Editor. In the editor chose from the networks list the network with the type “NAT”, then press “Restore Default” button in lower left corner. Let VMWare do its magic. Notice that your virtual machines need to be closed.
