I have seen this issue various VMs whereby I was unable to get the "Bridged Adapter" selection to work properly. I am not going to claim that this isthe preferred method of fixing the issue. Largely due to the fact that in order to have access to the internet from the VM, I then added a second adapter and modified the underlying os network configuration files.
While I have not used VMWare recently, I was able to solve this issue when using VirtualBox by changing the network configuration, Adapter 1, to a "Host-only Adapter". The downside to this change is that the VM does not have access to the internet unless a second (NAT) adapter is added and the networking config files are updated on the VM OS to support the second adapter.
