VMWare 6
Having just installed VMWare 6 onto Vista Ultimate and find that my LAN
connection takes a lot longer to connect at boot-up (probably due to the
virtual connections from VMWare).
I find that AVG and GMail Notifier both fail because they attempt to connect
before the LAN connection is live meaning I have to manually update
AVG and I have to tell GMail to check for mail.

Is there a way to force both AVG and GMail to wait a specified time before
attempting to connect at bootup?

thanks

Re: VMWare 6

You might try disabling the DHCP server VMWare installs with your
virtual network. You'd have to use bridged networking (vmnet0) and use
your nomal DHCP server (usuall in your router). You can also create an
isolated network on vmnet8 and manually set your IP address, but this
wouldn't allow external access.

Just a thought...
