    I am using NAT mode on the VMWare Fusion running Windows XP and am not able to get out to the Internet using IE or Firefox. I am able to get out to the Internet just fine from the host OS (Leopard) via Firefox. I can see on the task bar (lower right corner) the network connection lights going but only one of the computer icons light up as if there is a transmit but no receive. Usually if there is transmit and receive I'll see both computer icons lighting up.
    I've tried doing a ipconfig /release and /renew but to no avail.

    From a dos prompt I've tried pinging "yahoo.com" but with no success. The strange thing is that when I used this VMWare image last a few weeks back it was fine. Not sure what's changed.

    Any thoughts, something obvious I've missed?

    seems to be a setting problem, shut down the machine and ensure that the internet configurations are correct and see how you go :)

    What about the Fusion network icon? If you right click it, is the NIC connected and connect at power-on?

    Does bridged networking work properly? Remember that you will need to force Winbloze to re-grab an IP after you make this change. Reboot is easiest.

    How many users are on the machine? Is your user the primary? Who did you install Fusion as?
