Not sure what happened. Yesterday everything worked, today I booted up my VMware and it seems Ubuntu doesn't have an internet connection at all.
Tried all the different options (besides NAT that I normally use) like Bridged and Host-Only but it didn't help. Tried restarting my network via terminal etc. Under Ubuntu's internet settings it just shows that no Wi-Fi adapter is found.
Not sure what happened overnight, maybe some update that got installed? I did accidentally turn off the host computer before I could correctly shut down Ubuntu's VMware session but I doubt that did anything. Windows 7 that is also running on VMware on the other hand works perfectly.
How to proceed? Thanks!
