I ran an updated to Windows 10 and all of a sudden my VMs in VMware Workstations were showing “Network Cable Unplugged” when I tried to use them. Here’s what I did to fix that:
- Power off all your VMs
- In VMware Workstation go to Edit > Virtual Network Editor
- Choose to change settings and say OK to run as admin
- If you have static IPs or IP ranges you want to keep, note them
- Choose “Restore Defaults” at the bottom
I didn’t have to remove or add anything back to the VM. They came up and were good.
I hope this helps, let me know if you run into anything odd.
