If you are not using a virtual network adapter, you may wish to remove it. I don’t see the wireless adapter anywhere in the VM. You can view and change the settings for bridged networking on your host. You can map specific network adapters to specific virtual networks VMnets. I’m a software developer who doesn’t wonder much into networking knowledge areas. The network is completely contained within the host system. To remove an adapter from the list of excluded adapters, select its name in the list, then click Remove.

Host-only networking provides a network connection between the virtual machine and the host system by using a virtual network adapter that is visible on the host operating system.
Enabling, Disabling, Adding and Removing Host Virtual Adapters
The network vmnet1 has been reserved for a host-only network. When you install Workstation on a Vmwate or Linux host vmware virtual ethernet adapter for vmnet8, a host-only network VMnet1 is set up for you. If you answer Adaptsr, the program prompts you to select the wizard or editor to edit your network configuration. Select the adapter you want to disable. You can map specific network adapters to specific vmware virtual ethernet adapter for vmnet8 networks VMnets.
Are you sure dor want to modify it? You may change it, but it is highly recommended that you use it as a host-only network. Select the network corresponding to the adapter you wish to disable.

Understanding Common Networking Configurations
Select a LAN segment from the drop-down menu. Click Add new adapter. On Windows networks, browsing your network may be slower than usual.
A LAN segment is a private network that is shared by other adaptef machines. You can also start the network editor from the command line by using the vmware-netcfg command.
In the pop-up menu, select Disable. Instead, a separate private network is set up on the host system. In general, you should not change the subnet mask.
Answer Yes if you still want to use any networking in your virtual machines, then continue to the next question. Cmware the virtual network.
VMware Workstation 4.5
Select the adapter you want to modify. You might want to disconnect one or both of these virtual network adapters to improve performance on the host system.
Click the Bindings tab. Because broadcast packets must go to these adapters, the presence of virtual network adapters has a slight performance cost.
Click OK to save your changes. Select the adapter you want to disable. Click OK to save your configuration and close the Configuration Editor. To remove an adapter from the list of excluded adapters, select its name in the list, then click Remove. Select the adapter you want to modify. Select a custom network from the drop-down menu. You can reconnect a host virtual network adapter after you disconnect it.
The presence of these vritual has a slight performance cost, because broadcast packets must go to the eternet adapters. If the IP address is set statically, verify that the guest operating system has an address on the correct vmware virtual ethernet adapter for vmnet8 network.
