SOLVED: VMware Player 2.5.1 Bridged wireless networking fix?
Here's the deal. Vmware player 2.5.1 bridges my wireless internet connection on linux. I have to manually kill the vmware-networks service every time to make sure the host computer gets a working internet connection.
Is there any way of changing this in vmware-player? The 2.5.1 release does not have the good old vmware-config.pl command/program to do this.
Alternatively, how would I set up a script to run the following command on session login:
sudo (or gksudo) vmware-networks --stop
Thanks for any help.

Re: VMware Player 2.5.1 Bridged wireless networking fix?
So I found a workaround through a google search of the command.
For those that are interested and have a similar issue (wireless adapter being bridged to the vmware machine and host losing connection due to this setup), the solution is the following:
sudo gedit /etc/vmware/networking
Remove the lines associated with vmnet8
Save and close the file.
Restart the networking services with:
sudo vmware-networks --stop
sudo vmware-networks --start
