Sounds like a driver problem. What kind of adapter are you using?

have you have set vmware to dchp and have vmware tools installed?
although i do remeber that vmware cannot bridge wireless connections but if you have a USB Wireless adapter then you can make it get control of it...
but i believe that is not what you want though....
