VMware Network Adapter possibly not working

I've been playing around on some multiplayer games and it was a lot slower than usual, i tried plugging my ethernet cable in, the LED glowed and when i turned wireless off, there was no connection, i have tried disabling/re-enabling the driver, updating the driver, but nothing i have tried fixed the problem! Plz Help!
Oh and I know the cable works because it gives internet to the other computer in my house with Windows Vista Home Premium.
