just installed Ubuntu 8.10 in VMWare (Win) and am having problems with the network. The same problem happens both on my home network and at work : the network seems to start properly as it gets an IP address (that looks valid in both cases) and the DNS servers. But as soon as I try to do something with the network it fails. I cannot even ping the VMWare host from the VMWare guest and the other way also fails. One time everything worked fine at home for an unknown reason...

Any idea ?

Thanks !
