I have BT3 installed on VMware. I am trying to get my eth0 set up to run on my local network so I can use BT3 to work on pentesting my other two comps.

My localnetwork is setup as 192.168.1.1 as the gateway but BT3 on VMware keeps assigning me 192.168.196.0 as my default gateway. I tried changing the nic properties in VMX builder from NAT to BRIDGE, and it actually assigns the local networks info, but with no connectivity. I cant even ping the gateway. Back on my regular desktop (WINXP PRO) I ran ipconfig and it still has the VM nic assigned as 192.168.196.1. I logged into my router and it shows the VM nic as present on my DHCP tables.

How do I need to configure this so my VM runs on the same subnet as the rest of my PCs?
