Answer Yes if you still want to use any networking in your virtual machines, then continue to the next question. If you select Custom , choose the VMnet virtual switch you want to use for the network from the drop-down list. In some cases, these adapters interact with the host computer networking configuration in undesirable ways. Which virtual network do you wish to configure? In the Choose Network Adapters dialog box, select the listing for the adapter you want to exclude, then click OK. The presence of virtual network adapters has a slight performance cost, because broadcast packets must go to the extra adapters. You can reconnect a host virtual network adapter after you disconnect it.

Enabling, Disabling, Adding and Removing Host Virtual Adapters
By default, the VMnet0 virtual switch is set up in bridged mode and bridges to one of the active Ethernet adapters on the host computer. The following virtual networks have been defined: When you have made all the changes you want to make on all panels of the VMware Network Configuration dialog box, click OK.
Virgual steps are required to make them available for use in custom configurations. If you are sure you want to remove it, answer Yes to the question. Click OK to save your configuration and close the Configuration Editor. In the Choose Network Adapters dialog box, select the listing for axapter adapter you want to exclude, then click OK.
Would you prefer to modify your existing networking configuration using the wizard or the editor? To designate a physical Ethernet adapter to be used for bridged networking on virtual switches named VMnet2-VMnet7, click the Bridge Mapping tab.
The menu path might be different for your version of Linux. Select the adapter you want to disable. The following virtual networks have been defined: Click Add new adapter. It presumes that custom settings are not to be modified.
In the pop-up menu, select Disable. Are you sure you want to modify it? And in some cases, these adapters interact with the host computer’s networking configuration in undesirable ways.
Disconnect a Host Virtual Network Adapter
The presence of these adapters has a slight performance cost, because broadcast packets must go to the extra adapters. If you re-assign a physical Ethernet adapter to a different virtual switch, any virtual machine using the original adaptr loses its network connectivity via that switch.
These changes affect all virtual machines using bridged networking on the host.
Be careful when you change the bridged adapter mappings. You can decide which network adapters on your host to use for bridged networking. On Windows networks, browsing the network might be slower than usual. The network vmnet1 has been reserved for a host-only network.

On Windows networks, browsing your network may be slower than usual. Only an Administrator user can change network settings in the virtual network editor.
Because broadcast packets must go to these adapters, the presence of virtual network adapters has a slight performance cost. What type of virtual network do you wish to set vmnet1?
You can also start the network editor from the command line by using the vmware-netcfg command. You may be prompted to keep this virtual network. This is the only way to delete virtual etherner adapters without removing all of them.
This is the only way to delete virtual network adapters without removing all of them. You can reconnect a host virtual network adapter after you disconnect it.
This can be especially troublesome if your host has only one physical Ethernet adapter and you reassign it to a VMnet other than VMnet0; even though the Aadpter still appears to be bridged to an automatically chosen adapter, the only adapter it can use has been assigned to another VMnet.
In the pop-up menu, choose Properties.
