I tried the bridging setup without disturbing the default VMware settings - I switched the NAT to a bridged connection, bridged to my NIC card. I left the auto-bridging alone, but I don't think it will work with my modem/router (ISP supplied).
when I start the CentOS VM with VMware using these settings, it takes a while to start, and in the diagnostic window I can see that a message like this:
Determining IP information for eth0... [FAILED]
I also notice that I no longer have any connection in CentOS.
You said that I should be bridging the VM to my router? I don't see the option to do that in the Virtual Network Editor, only my NIC card appears in the list.
I do notice the firewall on my Windows box is displaying a new IP with this setup: 192.168.116.1
the result of ifconfig -a with VMware using this setup:

could this be because the bridged VM connection is not set to use my modem/router as the default gateway?
I don't know how the CentOS VM is supposed to obtain an IP using the DHCP service in my modem/router with simple access to my NIC card. surely this new IP that is appearing is not on the same subnet of my modem/router, so I don't see how it is communicating with it.
if this is the problem, where exactly would I enter the modem/router's gateway IP? I can only seem to enter this info on VMnet1, which appears to be where the 192.168.116.0 subnet is residing, but I don't know if this is supposed to be different? or perhaps I just have it set up wrong in the VNE?
