Post problems getting internet access in vmplayer with opensuse 11

Hi I'm Kurt and just started using linux about a week ago because I am going to school this fall for computer tech and want to expand my mind a bit before I go but anyway now that I've introduced myself I have this one problem I have yet to figure out I really hope someone can help cause it is driving me absolutely insane well here it is...
I am using opensuse 11 in vmplayer and I can not for the life of me figure out how to get internet access to the vmplayer machine I did for about a week by just changing my network config (in opensuse) from a dhcp setting to a statically assigned ip address which is the following
ethernet network card
ip address
79c970 [pcnet32 Lance]
ip address
now my network settings in windows xp media center edition (host os dhcp assigned)
ip address
my ethernet setting in vm is connected and set to bridged and my local area connection and vmware network adapters 1 and 8 are not physically bridged..they are only bridged by the vmware bridge protocol as this setting is the only one that has worked before for me...also I have went into the registry and allowed mac bridging with vmware network adapters 1 and 8 (since I guess xp wont allow it cause of dchp traffic leaking onto the local network) but all and all this setting worked for me for about a week then all of a sudden stopped and I have yet to figure out why and I have searched and searched the forums on the net with no success I hope I have provided all the necessary info hope to hear from you guys soon as I am very eagar to learn thanks!
