    Exclamation two networks one forr host one for vm

    i have been told that it is possible to connect to one network using a host OS and then connect to another OS using VMware or another virtual machine ap,i have both wireless and wired network cards, plus two separate networks, how could this be done, so far i can't even connect to a wired network with my card i get this with sudo lshw -C network

    I don't think you can do this with vmware. VMWare works through virtual networks that may use the hosts network interfaces. It doesn't work directly with network hardware on the host.

    VMware will use the hosts network interfaces either by bridging them or with NAT. Be aware that there is (was?) a bug in vmware server that doesn't allow bridging a wireless connection. There is a work around, someone on this forum has documented it.

    I would think you can do what you wish in VMware server using the Bridged network wherein the guest gets connected directly to the network, even though its through virtual drivers.

    Try it and see if it is possible to see more than one eth[n] address. This post down near the center of the first page points the way:

    Good luck but do let us know how you do.
