If you have a real (physical) network adapter on

If you don't have a NIC the VM guest(s) can still
talk to each other and the host.
i am having trouble with virtual n/w.
i have host system with 2 nic.(both on same subnet) network is 192.168.1.0
i created 3 virtual machines , 1 win , 1 suse and 1 redhat. i connected all this 3 virtual machines on vmnet2. which is subnet 192.168.5.0 .
all VMs are given static ip adress.dhcp is not active for that subnet
i just want guest only network connection and communican between all guest VMs . i do not want any thing connected to outside network.
but whenever i start my all 3 virtual machines -- only 2 of them can talk each other. 3rd one not able to comunicate even though its network services are up.
not conneting host can be any one which started last.
would u pls help me on this ?
