Ok, so I posted this a while ago:
Why does VMWare guests lose network access constantly on Windows 7 64 bit?
Well this issue didn’t happen from the middle of December until last week, it started again.
I toggled a bunch of settings, but every setting is correct. There must be something else causing this.
Update: Found this. I will set my NIC to not go to sleep and see if that works. Seems like a bug to me.
Update: That didn’t work.
Yeah, my computer went to sleep anyway, and with that setting, I couldn’t wake it up remotely. Lame.
