VMware cannot connect to Internet

i am using Fedora 13 vm on XP host. It has been working great
until today. I am trying to browse websites, yum software, but they do not work.

Ifconfig shows on eth0.
The network seems to work fine when pinging the XP host at and ping the router at

However, ping does not. I am not sure what i have done recently that causes this connection problem.

Can anyone think of anything else that may cause this problem?

To Connect to internet through internal VM, you need to construct NAT. should be the first step.
Also you need to configure it through iptables command to allow through some gateway.
