I install Ubuntu 12.04 on VMWare on D drive of Window 7. Now, Window 7 have internet connection but Ubuntu have no internet connection. In window 7, I use automatically detect proxy with wired connection. It's ok on Window7. Why it doesn't on Ubuntu. Please let me know.

Simply selecting NAT in the VM's options should work for basic network access - assuming that the NAT networking was set up when VMware (whatever?) was installed. more info can be found in here

Yes, I use only NAT. Before Ubuntu, I installed Window XP on that VMware. At that time, its ok in internet connection. I didn't make any changes. I can't find it out. – Nwe Nwe Nov 17 '12 at 8:29
