    So I'm using Win7 and I can connect online with Fusion 3 wired or wirelessly, it says it can't detect the network driver. Any idea how to fix this? I can do online on Win7 when using bootcamp...:confused::confused:

    Thanks,
    John

    What type of networking are you using in the VM (NAT, Bridged, Host only)?

    I've used both Nat and bridged successfully for fusion 3 (and its predessors)

    I currently use NAT with my Win7 Boot Camp Partition in VMWare Fusion 3 and don't have any issues.

    You may want to read the following article to understand the differences and figure out which is best for you.

    Have you tried rebooting the vm and your Mac?
    Have you tried (re)installing the VMware Tools?
